ABOUT US

For over 35 years, the Novi Educational Foundation has been the partner organization to the Novi Community School District to support all students by providing opportunities that enhance and expand their academic experience. Our passion and commitment is to ensure that every student in the district is able to build skills that will support them for a lifetime of success: leadership, communication, critical thinking, self-confidence, and relationship building.  

Proudly, we work in partnership with the students, parents and educational leaders in our district. Fundraising from the NEF is returned to the students and educators in our community in a variety of ways:

  • District-wide programming: Key programs that support a whole grade or school like Playworks training or Mindfulness

  • Enhancement grants for Educators:  Inspired by educators to enhance and expand learning opportunities for their students 

  • Student Scholarships – Financial support for students pursuing pathways beyond high school as well as for grade-level trips.

  • Teacher recognition and awards – Welcome awards for every new teacher to teacher appreciation gifts and support annually for the Teacher of the Year 

Our mission and commitment is made possible because of the generous support of parents, community members, business owners – all of whom are committed to the success of every student in our district. Attend an event, contribute financially, share your talents and time – all of it is needed and deeply appreciated. Together we can ensure that our students have the resources and the support they need to be ready for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

“The Novi Educational Foundation has a long history of listening to and helping our students and staff. Their partnerships with other businesses and active presence in our community make our schools a richer place for everyone to learn and grow, and I am grateful for their innovative and dynamic support.”
