NEF's Kid Booster is an emergency fund for the most dire issues that keep a child from learning effectively.
NEF helps fund inspirational enrichment programs or expand existing programs created by 203 teachers, parents and students. Each year,
30-50 grants are awarded in the categories of Literacy, Math/Science, Fine Arts, Health/Physical Education and Cultural Studies.
NEF helped create and fund Study Skills Academies in each of the Naperville School District 203 schools.The Academies give students
a boost with homework, additional learning strategies and time from a skilled educator. The Study Skills Academies have been credited
with helping raise standardized test scores in the District.
NEF provides a conduit for individuals or their families to fund and administer endowment or memorial funds from personal gifts or
community contributions. These restricted funds are used to support specific grants or provide students scholarships or awards based
on the wishes of the contributors.
