Who We Are

The Northampton Area Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt community organization established in 2010 to develop, support and finance innovative programs that enhance the quality of education for Northampton Area School District students.  The Foundation provides the District and teachers with funds that are used to extend learning opportunities and co-curricular experiences for the benefit of the entire school community.


What We Do

The Foundation funds various requests submitted by district faculty and administrators that enhance the quality of education in the classroom. Past gifts to the elementary, middle and high schools have included...

  • author's workshops with students and parents

  • an artist in residence at the high school

  • Bullying prevention programs 

  • Camp Innovation, a summer STEM program

  • supporting the TV studios at elementary, middle and high schools

  • The Kids Koffee Program at the High School to support life skills 


How We're Funded

The Foundation holds various fundraisers throughout the year including the annual golf tournament, the Distinguished Alumni Award Gala, the oldies dance, as well as the sale of memorial pavers. We also receive donations from area businesses, alumni, and members of the community.
