The North Branch Area Education Foundation is dedicated to enhancing student opportunities to achieve excellence!
Our fundraisers are only possible by the generous gifts and donations we receive that help support our vision, “to create a legacy of educational support in our community by building a network of individuals and organizations.” Money raised by the Foundation is donated to North Branch Area Public School District ISD-138 through Grants to benefit the students.
Each year, the Grant Committee reviews the grant applications and awards as many as possible. The committee receives about twice as many applications as there is money. Through your generous support of the Foundation Grants, Fund-A-Dream, and Angel Fund, we are able to help our children experience and learn from a teacher or coach who goes above and beyond the norm to create a lifelong learning experience.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, this year we have had to Cancel our ‘Designer Purse Bingo’, our ‘Lip Sync Battle’, and now our ‘Perfect 10 Gala’. We are all living a new normal, everything around us has changed, and this period of time is challenging.
Through this, we want to encourage our educators to submit their grant applications, knowing their requests may be very different than in the past. Our hope, is that we may still be able to honor these grant requests.
We can only hope that you will support our mission and make a donation to help us achieve our vision.
WAYS TO GIVE:
~ Make a donation online at nbaef.org
~ Send a check to 5842 Old Main Street, Suite 7-4, North Branch, MN 55056

Together we (parents, community leaders, business leaders, and educators) ARE making a Difference!
Thank You for your continued support of the NBAEF and the students of the North Branch Area Public School District ISD-138!

You may have heard the term “legacy giving” but weren’t sure what it meant. Here’s a basic definition: it is simply planning to make a difference, both for yourself and for a cause that you believe in, through a charitable gift. The goal of such gifts is to “leave a legacy” that can make an impact for future generations.
John and his late wife, Pamela, were both graduates of the North Branch School System. John has decided to honor his Alma Mater by making NBAEF as a Beneficiary on his IRA designated for the Angel Fund.
We are so blessed for this amazing gift. Thank You!
We have made the very difficult decision to Cancel our annual Perfect 10 Gala. The safety of our Community is of the utmost importance to us. We wish you all health and happiness during this time. Hoping the world will improve, and we can all be together again next year, at the Perfect 10 Gala!
