Open Doors Fund

A generous anonymous gift of $300,000 from an NPS family has launched the creation of a new endowment, the Open Doors Fund for Financial Aid.  This fund will open doors for students at NPS for decades, and, like all endowment gifts, will provide a reliable and consistent source of income in perpetuity benefitting the school, and our students and families, for years to come.

With an eye on enhancing socioeconomic diversity at NPS, the donors specified their desire that children from historically underrepresented backgrounds be given the opportunity to benefit from an NPS education. Their transformational donation strengthens and enriches the school’s financial aid program, which provides need-based tuition assistance to students at all grade levels at NPS.  

Another donor to this fund said, “We are so grateful for the quality of an NPS education, the caring staff,  and the thorough instruction children receive. We are supporting the Open Doors Fund so other children may also be able to receive an education at NPS.”

NPS welcomes additional support for this endowment for financial aid. Please contact Director of Development Mary Marra  if you would like to support the Open Doors Fund or the NPS endowment in general.
