Announcing the 2021 "I Love Neshaminy" Alumni campaign!
February is “Love” month and there is no better time to show your love for your alma mater! This month, we’re asking for help from our alumni.
The Covid pandemic has created many challenges for our schools, teachers and students. There are many added expenses to providing lessons virtually and creating a safe environment within the schools. The non-profit Neshaminy Education Foundation is dedicated to supporting staff and students. In the past we have provided teacher grants for innovative projects, many of these have become part of the established curriculum. Many of you have benefited from these projects. We have also given scholarships to students seeking higher education.
This year we chose to use our funds to provide headset microphones to staff as they simultaneously taught in their classrooms and virtually. We hope to do more, but cannot without your support.
Please show your love for Neshaminy by donating to our campaign, and indicate your class year when donating. The NEF plans to recognize the class giving the most funds on our Endowment Wall outside Theodore Kloos Auditorium at Neshaminy HS. A tile will be dedicated to the class that raises the most money.
You can donate quickly and securely at the Givebutter website below. Please show your love for Neshaminy by giving and sharing this information with your classmates and other alumni!

Neshaminy School District is committed to maintaining educational excellence while ensuring the safest environment possible during the Covid-19 pandemic. The cost of accomplishing these goals is astronomical -- everything from extra staff and cleaning supplies to technology and educational materials that support learning both online and in the classroom.
The non-profit Neshaminy Education Foundation is ready to support these efforts by providing funding. In lieu of the annual teacher grant program, the NEF donated $18,000 to provide bluetooth microphone headsets to teachers to enhance their communication with students joining classes remotely from home.
