Every tax deductible donation to NFAB goes far to fill the gaps in arts funding and to support students who may not otherwise be able to participate in arts programming in Northfield Public Schools. Since NFAB was founded in 2010, your donations have supported dozens of projects benefitting not just district students but the Northfield community as a whole.

Sheet music from historically underrepresented composers for NHS Band
Guest conductors for the NMS Music Festival
Outdoor mural event at Spring Creek Elementary
World music and instruments for NMS Choir
Backdrop for the NHS fall play

As we look to the future of the Fine Arts Boosters, we eagerly anticipate growing support for the arts and the thousands of project support opportunities that exist. We review funding requests on a regular basis and invite Northfield Public School arts organizations to fill out our NFAB Program Funding Request Form for support consideration. Before submitting a grant request, consult your building principal to see if school district funds are available to cover your request.
