NORTH SYRACUSE EDUCATION FOUNDATION
FALL - WINTER 2015
From the Desk of the NSEF President
For those of you who may not be familiar with the NSEF, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, public charity. We are a separate entity from the North Syracuse Central
School District (NSCSD), and our mission is to enhance the education and cultural
enrichment of the students of the NSCSD. What more valuable, lifelong gift can we
give to our community than a solid, public school education! The NSEF is here to
foster communication between various stakeholders. It is the Corporation’s belief that
many within the community share the NSCSD’s and NSEF’s vision of quality
education for our students and would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate that
commitment through private source funding.
As we look to the future, the NSEF has many goals and responsibilities. We will
continue to fund our endowment with the CNY Community Foundation which is
currently over $120K. We will continue to offer education grants as we have awarded
almost 100 grants totaling over $80K to date. We will continue to support unfunded
student programs as we have for the second year in a row for a total of over $25K to
date. Through our matching donation program, we funded student clubs and activities
that would no longer exist without NSEF support such as CNS Science Olympiad,
CNS Math League, NSJH DECA Business Club, GRMS FCCLA, and Cadet
Winterguard just to name a few. We will continue to support NS Dollars for Scholars
as we have in the past by funding four scholarships for CNS Seniors for a total of $2K
per year. We will continue to work with district administrators and educators to
identify needs and programs within the district that need funding. We will continue to
build our all-volunteer Board to lead the Foundation into the future.
The NSEF believes that the students of the NSCSD deserve the best
education available in the U.S. at all levels, in all areas of the curriculum, as well as
enrichment from co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Please visit our website at
www.nsefweb.org to learn more about our organization, and please consider joining
the NSEF as a volunteer or board member. Please “Like us” on Facebook and keep
updated by following news on Facebook or the website. Note that donations are taxdeductible according to the law, and you can designate the NSEF as your beneficiary
for United Way, AmazonSmile and other charitable avenues. Please feel free to
reach out to me anytime at [email protected] with suggestions, questions or
feedback.
SincerelyJackie Forte
NSEF President
