Northshore School District starts Opportunity Fund Scholarships | Letter

I am writing this letter as a parent of Northshore School District as well as a board member of the Northshore Schools Foundation to draw attention toward the foundation’s newest funding initiative: the Opportunity Fund.

The Opportunity Fund provides the opportunity for deserving students to take their K-12 education to next level by providing scholarships funds to students who, due to financial limitations, are not able to participate in academic competitions and earn college credits at the subsidized rate.

The foundation is seeking financial support in the form of tax deductible donations to help establish and maintain a fund of $5,000 per middle school and high school to accommodate needs of our students. You can find out more information about this program by visiting our website at tinyurl.com/y987rr3u.

Donations can help a National History Day finalist student visit the White House or support an FBLA student competing for a Future Business Leader Award or cover the cost of AP testing for a student whose family can’t afford it.

Thank you for helping us remove the income barrier for students who demonstrate commitment and excellence in education by spreading the word or making a donation today.

Sincerely,

Farah Syed,

Northshore Schools Foundation
