What we do
"Our vision is a community where our students have the opportunities to
achieve their full potential in a global society."
"To bring that vision into reality, we provide financial resources to fund
superior education and varied world experiences including, but not limited
to, academics, music, athletics, arts, and civic activities for children in
the Northwood School District."
We've accomplished that by funding small projects such as music camp tuition and
supplies for the science classes, and large undertakings such as thenew
electronic Northwood sign, and the baseball, softball,
and football fields.
We've gone low-tech with geology kits, and high-tech through paying for part of the district's
school-wide revamping of its computer system and through software that helps
special education students read.
We've sent teachers to conferences to further develop their skills and students
to the play "The Diary of Anne Frank" after they read the book during their
study of the Holocaust.
We've awarded scholarships through designated funding from the Link Family
Scholarship Fund and other scholarships.
In all, we've funded projects or programs in nearly every subject area at
We've also written grants for the school to help
Northwood reach, teach, and inspire its students.
How we do it
Through the generous donations of community members,
alumni, friends of Northwood School, area businesses, and local organizations.
Together, we've funded $430,212
worth of projects (plus $31,000-plus in scholarships) that enhance
learning opportunities at the school, opportunities that otherwise would
not have been possible.
