Celebrating brilliant educators who offer an extraordinary learning experience is one part of what the NBAEF can accomplish. Through your generous support, money can be made available for children to experience and learn from a teacher or coach who goes above and beyond the norm to create a lifelong learning experience. The foundation was started in 2008 with a small group of enthusiastic people who found a need. Generous donors needed a place that could grow a fund that can be giving "forever" to educational excellence. A great deal of pride for the North Branch Area Schools, the community, its people and the businesses leads the reasoning behind starting a foundation to raise funds for educational excellence. The school cannot accept and keep a growing fund that can provide grants. NBAEF fills this need! Passion for education is a common bond the board members share. It is because of this passion that we ask for your generous support to help grow the foundation through support and donations of money. Giving to the benefit of our children will return to all of us ten fold!
