National Trail School Foundation

Our Mission

The mission of the National Trail School Foundation is to cultivate and accept donations to endow the National Trail Local School District and provide funds for the creation of, or participation in, enrichment programs through grants and scholarships. 

The primary strategy of the Foundation is to build an unrestricted endowment, supplemented by donor advised and other special purpose funds.

2015 Career Days

The National Trail School Foundation (NTSF) is teaming up with the NT Faculty in sponsoring a “Career / College Fair” for students of all 5 Preble County High Schools.   This successful event will allow area businesses, organizations, and colleges to interact with between 700 to 800 Preble County students and introduce them to potential career and educational paths they may want to pursue.

Businesses and colleges will have the opportunity to talk with these students, in a casual setting, to discuss various aspects of their business career or college opportunity such as:  education and training required, responsibilities, future opportunities, rewards of their job, etc.  Students will also have various questions prepared to help initiate discussions concerning your career, your business, or college.

Want to lend a hand?

The National Trail School Foundation is in need of a few people interested in contributing to the work the Foundation has started. We need people that are interested in cultivating and accepting donations from friends of the National Trail Local School District to allow for the creation of, or participation in enrichment programs within the schools through grants, scholarships or program supplementation.

In addition, we work to promote community involvement, enthusiasm and support for the school, through parental, faculty and alumni support in the preservation and enhancement of quality education in the school district.
