Do Double the Good and Offer a Hand Up


We know that Northern is a great community full of generous people.

We are hoping you will consider joining us to Offer a Hand Up and Do Double the Good.

Here is how it works:

  • Purchase gift cards through the PBF for locally owned businesses

  • The PBF will give the gift cards to the NYCSD Guidance Counselors

  • Guidance Counselors will distribute the cards to students and families in need.

Businesses get a boost and families get a hand up!

​​​​​Polar Bear Foundation Athletic Fund Initiative

We are excited to support the athletic programs of our School District through the establishment of a PBF Athletic Fund.  The Athletic Fund will provide donors the opportunity to direct their contributions into programs to enhance our athletic fields, equipment, supplies and opportunities. 
The first major project of the Athletic Fund is to raise money for the construction of a new turf field.  Please click for additional information on the Turf Field Project and donation opportunities.
