Thanks to your Generous Support, Since January 1, 2020, NTEF Donated $402,000 to Support Students and Families

This year, we’ve been busier than ever, helping students and families in need because the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for North Thurston Public Schools’ (NTPS) families and students related to child care, accessing school supplies and finding adequate tools for remote learning.

Thanks to your generous support, since January 1, 2020, NTEF donated $402,000 to support students and families. Approximately $80,000 of this amount went to address food insecurity in the district. We have helped 33 families with their rent and security deposits (a total of $20,000-assisting 82 students) and have helped over 3,500 students in the North Thurston school district this year.

Due to the pandemic, not only have we seen families need more support than ever, we are seeing families reach out who’ve never required help in the past. This holiday season, we ask you to consider giving to help students and families overcome obstacles to success.  

Through December 31, 2020, you have an opportunity to give your 2020 tax-deductible donation to North Thurston Education Foundation! The Cares Act added a new $300 charitable contribution deduction for 2020. (See more information in the article below.)

Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. 

Our Student Assistance GrantsLearning Improvement Grants, and Scholarships all support our mission of Removing Barriers, Enhancing Learning and Enriching Lives for Students in Thurston County. Every donation makes an immediate difference for our students and families and the need is immense.
