The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District.  Board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. Many of the donations received are for selected projects or district-wide scholarships, yet a substantial amount is available for the greatest need.  Greatest need monies are considered for grants submitted by area schools.
