The Northwestern Community Educational Foundation is a non-profit entity that operates separate from the District. The group was officially recognized by the Northwestern School District Board of Directors in October 2012. The Board fully supports the philanthropic value of the organization and also recognizes NCEF as the sole and exclusive foundation supporting the educational mission of the school district.
PURPOSE: The Foundation is an independent public charity dedicated to encouraging community-wide participation and philanthropy in order to enhance and expand enrichment opportunities for all students in the Northwestern School District and insure long-range financial flexibility for schools within the District.
NCEF Receives $500 from Nutec
With the support of NCEF the Northwestern Middle School robotics program received $500 from Nutec in Meadville, PA. The money was through the state's EITC program that provides tax credits to local companies that directly support creative educational improvement initiatives. Thank you Nutec for helping make a difference in our students' lives.

MISSION: The mission of the Foundation is to ensure the highest level of educational innovation supporting students, faculty and staff with community involvement in a partnership of lifetime learning.
