For the Love of the Arts Our NCEF gala dinner and auction raised $77,000 to support NCEF.

North Clackamas is facing the most challenging time in the history of our school district during this financial crisis. After making substantial staff reductions in our fourth year of reduced funding, the most noticeable impact is that class sizes, but there have been schedule cuts, school closures, increased fees, and more children coming to school not prepared. Our Annual Gala Dinner and Auction raises funds to help advance our mission to bridge the gap between district funding and unmet student needs. All funds go directly into the North Clackamas schools community, as an investment in our kids

The success of our Auction is directly related to the generous contributions from Friends of NCEF and the community.
