Mission

Since 1992 our mission has been to provide scholarships to graduating seniors and improve educational opportunities for all students at Omaha North High.

What We Do

Scholarships - Scholarships are funded through gifts or memorials to be awarded to graduating seniors to further their post high school educational goals. A minimum of 75% of the income from the fund must be used for scholarships.

Special Projects - The Foundation also supports student initiated special study projects, assisting with fees and/or expenses needed for attending educational seminars on the local, state, or national level.

How to Make a Difference

Contributions made to the Foundation will continue to work forever, to support the needs of future generations of Vikings! Every donation is placed in a permanent endowment, where your gift produces income far beyond its original value. The Foundation is a means by which a substantial amount of money can be built over time from contributions both large and small, the income from which is used to meet the goals of the foundation.
