"There is no easy way to create a world where all children receive as much education as their minds can absorb.  But if such a world can be created in our lifetime, it will be done by people of good will."
~The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NEF Partners with Groupon and Amazon

Amazon And GrouponThe Nixa Education Foundation (NEF) has been chosen to be among the first to participate in an exciting new program that will generate money for our schools - the "Create Excitement for Public Schools Initiative." 

Through this initiative, NEF is partnering with a nonprofit (Create Excitement) to give back when you shop through Amazon, Groupon, and other great companies (which offer incredible deals and is an easy way to discover the city around you at a great price).   By doing nothing more than redirecting your online buying, you can help raise money for our schools:


1.     Register by clicking HERE: Create Excitement. Once you register you will receive a daily email with the Groupon deal of the day and the links to Amazon. These companies will also offer premier deals specifically for the Nixa Public Schools and periodic specials so check your email every day.


2.    If you already have a Groupon account, please note that it is important that you buy through this link rather than the one that you are currently receiving directly from Groupon. The deals are the same, but the Foundation only benefits if you click through the Nixa Education Foundation email.


The Foundation will receive a portion of the proceeds based on the amount of purchases by our supporters. We can increase this amount tremendously if you forward this email to everyone you know and ask them to register. They will automatically receive the Groupon for their area of the country and the Foundation will receive a percentage of their sales. Please send it to all of your friends on Facebook.   


Schools are at the heart of every community, and community is at the heart of every school. This is especially true in Nixa. For generations the community and schools have served one another remarkably well. The Nixa Education Foundation has been established to ensure this relationship continues to thrive for the many generations of eagles to come.

The foundation truly is an investment- it is an organization formed exclusively for the purpose of generating financial resources to meet the needs of Nixa Public School's students, faculty, and organizations. The Nixa Education Foundation secures financial resources to support quality education through innovative programs, creative opportunities, and imaginative approaches. These programs enrich the curriculum, inspire students and staff, and expand the community's involvement in public education. Teachers throughout the district can apply to the NEF for grants, which are awarded by the board of directors based on need and value to the community educational vision. In this way, the NEF is a long-term, community supported solution for the varied short-term financial needs of Nixa's classrooms and curriculum.

Please explore the site to learn how grants from the NEF have already helped the schools of Nixa and how you can become a donor.
