Why Donate to Northside?

Friends of Northside provides critical funding to our school that helps ensure it maintains unparalleled educational standards, along with extracurricular activities that matter to our students. CPS only covers a portion of what Northside needs to provide the level of educational experience for our students. The Annual Appeal is Northside’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Direct donations are the most effective way to help our school, and are used to fund critical needs such as our counseling staff, technology staff, wellness center and after-school security.  Donations also go to support our athletic teams and many clubs our students are actively involved in.  All of our students benefit. 

Your gifts offset public funding deficits to keep NCP the amazing school our families value.

We appreciate every single donation in any amount. Every contribution makes a difference!
