Annual Golf Outing
Dillsburg golfers and businesses, DRIVE towards inspiring, innovative education with your aces and birdies for the Polar Bear Foundation! All this fun on a Friday morning supports a very important cause, the educational and growth opportunities at Northern York County School District. In the past twelve months the PBF has provided funding for the Softball Batting Cage renovation, Working Tables for FACS, Music Software Program and Laptop, NHS Cheer Signs, Creative Writing Club, Guest Composer and Parade March Composition and more! Dollars spent on the golf outing or by business sponsors will go directly to grants applied for the 2023-24 school year. This is a great opportunity to show that your business or organization supports the students and staff of NYCSD and you are dedicated to the future by investing in education now.
PBF Polar Plunge
Dillsburg is a community with strong ties and so many graduates stay or return to raise families and belong to the community they grew up in. Some venture out-of-state and out-of-the-country. No matter where they end up, the Polar Bear Foundation wants each student to have the best and most varied educational opportunities so they can succeed after graduation and become contributing members of whatever community they decide to call home. Our dedication to our youth today benefits our tomorrows.
While the Polar Plunges are fun, they serve to make the Polar Bear Foundation more well-known and to raise important dollars. Fall and Spring program grants are the large ones that benefit entire grades, groups or schools so their funding costs are higher. We continue to review and approve grants on a monthly basis with NOW Grants. Dollars raised are dollars that turn into Kindertown, summer music lessons, writing club, guidance curriculum for anti-bullying and much, much more.
