THE NPA: We Run on Volunteers
The NPA's mission is to enrich the lives of students, their families and the community by supporting The Arts, Academics and Athletics at Nordhoff, as well as enhancing community spirit through volunteering.
During the 2016/17 school year, the Nordhoff Parent Association contributed over $32,000 to pay for Athletic Awards and Tournament Fees, as well as provided grants to the Drama, Dance, and Music departments. The NPA also provided funds to the Peer Tutoring Program, College and Career Center, and computer classes, funded Athletic and Academic Equipment, and Student Appreciation and Scholarship Opportunities.
We also coordinated and resourced two Campus Cleanup Days, donated chairs for the Quad area to promote small group discussions and resourced two Teacher Appreciation events. Volunteers are the heart of our organization - and we are always looking for folks to work the Snack Bar, Spring Showcase, Beautification Day, Grad Night, Graduation, Dances, etc. If you have the time and would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information. Thank you!

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
How does my organization receive the donations?
Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation makes donations to eligible charitable organizations by electronic funds transfer. Donations will be transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. To account for Product returns, a portion of the quarterly donations will be withheld until the next donation cycle, subject to any reduction due to returns from prior quarters. See theAmazonSmile Participation Agreement for more details.
