NORTHRIDGE HALLOF FAME
Good news for students and members of the Northridge
community. The idea for a Northridge Hall of Fame became a reality after many years of talk and discussion. A group of six
Northridge teachers established the framework for the Northridge Hall of Fame that annually recognizes people who have made
important contributions to our community, and who also serve as role models for the students of the Northridge School District.
The overriding factor in deciding the direction for the Hall of Fame was a generally agreed need to provide positive influences
for our students to observe and to interact with when possible. Upon this basic premise the committee will seek, with help
from the public, individuals to recognize annually in October. Anyone may be considered who might be willing to share his
or her experiences for success in life, and who meets our mission objective as described in the paragraphs that follow about
the Northridge Hall of Fame. If you have someone in mind, please take a few minutes to help us by completing a nomination
form that may be obtained from this website.

NORTHRIDGE POLAR BEAR FOUNDATION
Mission: Educating Today for Tomorrow’s Succes
What is the Northridge
Polar Bear Foundation?
In April, 2007, retired Northridge High
School teacher, Charles Barker and his wife Margaret, donated $7,500 as seed money for the establishment
of the Northridge Polar Bear Foundation. This generous act by Mr. Barker was soon followed by an
$8,000 donation by the Northridge DVKH Optimist Club.
Nowadays, we frequently lack information on how to channel our generosity and community spirit. That’s
where the Polar Bear Foundation can help. It is a tax-exempt, nonprofit, publicly supported foundation created to promote
philanthropy. It encourages voluntary giving by an individual or group to benefit the Northridge School District. In addition,
the Optimist Club has made a pledge to match up to $8,000 in donations annually.
According to the articles of incorporation,
“the purpose of the foundation is to accept and expend funds for curricular and extra curricular activities, programs
and facilities and support of scholarship programs.” While the Northridge Polar Bear Foundation is controlled by a board
of trustees, the oversight of its operation and fund investment is provided by The Dayton Foundation, which has served our region since 1921. This partnership allows for local governance
while profiting from resources pooled with others for investment growth.
The Polar Bear Foundation is currently seeking
contributions of all sizes to carry out its mission. Many options exist including gifts of cash, stocks, bonds and other assets.
Please contact us today by phone at 937-278-5885 or call 937-225-9966 or toll free 877-222-0410 to reach Diane Timmons of The Dayton
Foundation or e-mail Diane at email@example.com to make a contribution and reduce your tax burden.
Now is the time for Polar Bears past and present to once
again show their true Northridge Pride! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
