Upcoming Activities:
As the new school year begins the club will be evaluating requests for Northridge Polar Bear Foundation Fund grants for the fall cycle of the 2022-2023 school year. The grant application form is made available through the school. There will be two grant cycles during the year, with a total of $4500 to $5000 to be granted for programs that enhance the educational opportunities for Northridge students (K-12). The Northridge Polar Bear Foundation Fund is a fund administered by The Dayton Foundation. The Northridge Optimist Club supports this fund with donations, and also in an advisory capacity in the grant selection process. An amount of $5408 was awarded during the 2021-2022 school year. CLICK HERE to learn more about the fund and what it does.
