Norwin foundation seeks to raise $5,000


A Norwin foundation hopes to raise $5,000 in donations Wednesday for educator innovation grants and scholarships for Norwin graduates.

The Norwin School District Community Foundation is seeking to raise the money from 8 a.m. to midnight Wednesday, the Day of Giving, which is being held in conjunction with Norwin’s Homecoming festivities this week. The donations can be made through the school district community foundation website at

The money raised this year will be used to grow the foundation’s smallest scholarship endowment funds. Donors also can add funds to any scholarship facilitated by the foundation.

Money also can be earmarked for the Educator Innovation Grant program, which provides start-up funds for teachers to provide innovative instruction.

Donors also can allow the foundation to direct donations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
