We have enjoyed many years with the Deuces Wild Dueling Pianos as our entertainment for the Gala, and thank them for their support every year.
Our 2018 'Perfect 10 Gala' helped raise funds for this year's Grants!. Thanks to the support of all who participated, $15,000 was designated for Grants! This year's Grant Recipients are:
Each year, the Grant Committee reviews Grant Proposals and awards as many as possible. The Committee typically receives twice as many Grants as there is money. Please consider making a Donation to the NBAEF, attending one of our events, or signing up for payroll deduction. Did you know, that if 1000 people each committed to donating $1 per paycheck, NBAEF could give an additional $24,000 in Grants to deserving programs.
Check out our website, to see Grant Recipients from prior years!

As Real Estate Agents, we are often asked about the school district. Today, NBAPS hosted their Patron Tour for Realtors. It was absolutely Amazing!
Superintendent Deb Henton spent four hours with us! We visited all five facilities, the Principal of each school spent time with us, we interacted with the kids at all levels, learned about the advantages NBAPS provides students that other districts cannot, including Project Lead the Way, Air Force ROTC, ProStart, computers for every student (5-12) and So Much More! And, we took the 'hard hat' tour of the new areas still under construction! We ended the Tour having lunch with high school students!
I absolutely recommend taking the Patron Tour. You will be shocked at all our District has to offer. I was blown away with the enthusiasm, appreciation, and caring nature of our Educators.
Your kids are so lucky to have these amazing people helping them with their education and so much more!
Thank You ISD 138!
- Kim Theis, NBAEF President

We are excited for the future of the Foundation. We are working on new ideas to enhance our current events. In addition, we are bringing new events and new styles of contributing, to our fundraising efforts. These efforts will help to grow our Endowment Fund, as well as continued support for educational Grants. All funds will go to support ISD 138 only.
In addition to fundraising, we are putting efforts into marketing. We remain true to the original Foundation message, and are enhancing that message, with current information regarding the Foundation and our efforts to continue support of ISD 138. We have a new website and are creating new marketing materials as well. Going forward, we will keep our Facebook page, website, and marketing materials up-to-date with new Foundation information and facts, promoting our events, and follow-up to events such as pictures and amounts raised.
