Our current project is focused on full funding of our Warhawk Lancer Scholarship Fund. This is our first major project. We anticipate that full funding will require $240,000 in annual giving, or an endowment of $8,000,000. Since 2019 we have made huge strides towards fully funding the Warhawk Lancer fund, but we need your help to reach this ambitious goal.

John & Kathleen Schreiber Foundation Grant

NCPEF has received a $1.5 million grant from the John & Kathleen Schreiber Foundation. NCPEF is currently an all volunteer run organization and this 5-year grant will allow us to hire professional staff to support fundraising and operations and to further support our students. This grant ensures that 100% of all other donations go exclusively to programs for our students.
We are extremely grateful to the John & Kathleen Schreiber Foundation and to all of our donors who support our students’ futures!
