We rely on donations from our many supporters in order to reach our goals and continue to grow. Your donation today helps the students, teachers, and families of the North Clackamas School District in many ways. Each of the programs your donation goes to helps to ensure every child in North Clackamas is engaged and ready to learn. The programs NCEF funds give students the tools they need to reach for their dreams in the classroom and beyond. Read below about the many programs we support, as well as find the option to donate directly to the program you are most passionate about supporting. You can also choose to make a General Donation to the Foundation. These donations allow us to fill the buckets of funding where programs may be lacking, allow us to expand our enrichment grant program funding more innovative projects for the classroom, and allows us to give more scholarships to more students.

General Donation

General Donations help us to put funding into areas where it is most needed.

General donations allow us to expand our programs ensuring students and teachers have the tools they need to succeed.

Backpack Buddies

The BackPack Buddies program fights food insecurity by giving students in need a backpack full of food to take home over the weekend when school breakfast and lunch is not available. This program currently serves more than 800 students in North Clackamas and is continuing to grow. You can help ensure a child receives the nutrition they need to face the world head on by making a donation today.

Emergency Housing Fund

The emergency housing fund alleviates some of that stress that comes with the sudden loss of income or unexpected expenses with a one-time rental or utility payment.  Community resources for rental assistance are extremely limited, and with this fund the Family Support Center has helped keep families housed when a parent's work hours were suddenly reduced, or when they needed to take time off of work because of an unexpected illness. The fund contributes to move-in costs for a family that was without stable housing for several months so they could get an apartment of their own, and helps bridge payment gaps when a parent was between jobs.

Enrichment Grants

Each school year NCEF awards more than $25,000 in Educational Enrichment Grants to teachers throughout the District. These grants fund projects that enrich the classroom environment and engage students in learning, promoting positive outcomes and sustainability in education. 100% of your donation increases the funds available to award to these valuable programs.

Family Support Center

Your donation helps to improve the well-being of children and their families within the context of the greater community. The North Clackamas Family Support Center brings together health and social services for the benefit of the local community and supports Oregon’s effort to improve education.

Lunch Buddies Mentor Program

A Lunch Buddy is someone to eat with, someone to talk to, someone to listen to, someone to laugh with, and someone a child can depend on to be there for them. Spend 50 minutes once a week helping a child gain better relationships with their peers and feel better about their school community. Your donation supplies the necessary support to keep this important program operational.


You can donate to our general Scholarship Fund which is used to supplement all scholarships or leave the name of the specific scholarship you wish to donate to in the comment box on the donation form. Your donation allows us to increase scholarship awards to graduating North Clackamas Seniors, allowing more students to pursue their dreams.
