Mark Your Calendars

Donate for 24 hrs on May 6 @

Tuesday, May 6, is a great day to give to the North Kitsap Schools Foundation because your money will go further. NKSF is participating in the Kitsap Great Give, a 24-hour on-line fundraising event presented by the Kitsap Community Foundation and the United Way of Kitsap County. What makes this community-wide day of giving so exciting is that donations to NKSF and other participating non-profits will be matched proportionately by more than $100,000 from Great Give sponsors.

Here’s what you can do to support NK students: Mark your calendar for May 6. Go to that day between midnight and 11:59 p.m. and make a tax-deductible donation to North Kitsap Schools Foundation. Tell your friends, colleagues and family about this opportunity to be part of the biggest day of philanthropy in Kitsap County history.

We’ll use all donations plus our share of the matching funds to support NK students. Since 2012, the foundation has given $70,000 to local schools to help bridge the gap between state funding and local needs. When you give to the North Kitsap Schools Foundation, you’re funding extra reading support for a struggling second grader. You're helping a high school physics student gain a better understanding of the cosmos with improved classroom technology. And, you’re giving a fifth-grader more one-on-one time with a math instructor. In short, you’re helping NK students succeed.

Thank you for your support!
