Get Involved with North Star

Getting Involved With North Star Charter School

Meaningful partnerships are critical to a healthy and thriving community! North Star strives to build strong partnerships in our school family and surrounding business community. There are a variety of different ways to invest in North Star listed below. Please consider coming alongside us to develop tomorrow’s leaders!
Direct Donations: North Star welcomes financial donations of any size! As a public charter school we receive about 22% less than the public district schools. Every dollar we receive is put to work for our students. However, due to the rising costs of education and the gap in funding we receive, we must raise the additional money needed from our community to provide the best education possible for our students. Financial gifts may be made in the form of cash, checks, securities, matching gifts and planned giving. All gifts are tax-deductible and eligible for the Idaho State Education Tax Benefit.
Volunteerism: Your gift of time and talent in the classroom, serving on a Board or Committee, or executing community building events is invaluable to us! North Star has a history of strong volunteerism and we believe this quality not only sets a wonderful example for our students but deeply enriches the education we provide.

Sponsorship: Campaign sponsorships allow a business to determine their giving level based on pre-determined sponsorship levels and benefits. Cash and in-kind donations are included in this category.
Give Back Program: This partnership is for businesses that offer a product or service and donate a portion of the proceeds to back to North Star. All Donations go to a “where needed most” fund to be determined by North Star Administration Team. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT: GIVE BACK PROGRAM
Internship/Work Study Program: North Star Secondary School offers a credited Internship Class for students wanting to explore the workplace and career options. North Star Internship Teacher and Counselor will partner with you to ensure a valuable experience for both the employer and student. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT: INTERNSHIP/WORK STUDY OVERVIEW
