Support the Foundation

Supporting the Norwin School District Foundation is easy. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which means your donations are tax-deductible. Here are a few avenues to consider to support the Foundation

The Westmoreland County Day of Giving

The Foundation is an active participant in this annual county-wide event. Because of matching funds, the Foundation receives much more than the value of your original donation. That match is why we ask you to donate specifically on Day of Giving. Please be advised that the Day of Giving organizers at the county level have historically required donors to make an online credit card donation of at $25 to the charity of their choice.

Day of Giving donations have allowed the Foundation to begin the Educator Innovation Grant program, which invites teachers to apply for funding for innovative educational projects.

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit

A gift to the Norwin School District Community Foundation can provide your company with a substantial tax credit through the PA Education Improvement Tax Credit Program. Please click here to learn more about this option.
