Neodesha Educational Foundation Mission

Neodesha Educational Foundation: Background/Overview

The Neodesha Educational Foundation (NEF) is a non-profit organization that works in conjunction with Neodesha Public Schools, USD 461.  This organization was established in 1995 by then Superintendent of schools, High School Principal, and various community members.  The organization was established with bylaws and a governing board for the purpose of exposing Neodesha High School students with on the job training in the construction industry.  Each year students have the opportunity to be enrolled in a building trades class at Neodesha High School.  This class partners with the NEF to preform construction tasks within the community of Neodesha.  Since the inception of the organization these students have built over 20 houses from the ground up.  They have also completed remodeling projects for the school, local churches, businesses, and community members.  The projects completed by the NEF have added value to our community along with providing our community with much needed housing options. 

The NEF is also working towards a partnership with USD 461 to build a duplex that will provide incoming teachers with available housing.  The NEF is dedicated to the community of Neodesha and is looking to further expand the impact they have. 

The NEF has also partnered with the Neodesha United Methodist Church to create a school supply drive.  This effort will provide every student, Pre-K thru 6, in the community of Neodesha with school supplies for free.  This annual event is designed to help our local students obtain success in school by providing them the supplies they need.  If you would like to donate you can do so on the NEF donations page or by contacting either Nathan West or Jennifer Meigs at Neodesha High School.  

In addition to the school supply drive, the NEF is also offering engraved granite tiles to commemorate individuals and their accomplishments.  If you would like to purchase a granite tile through the NEF, please visit our donations page to complete the ordering process.

The primary goal of the NEF is to provide meaningful work to the community of Neodesha and we will continue to remain focused on that goal.
