With great regret, the Ninnekah Public School Foundation will cease operation on August 27, 2021.
The departure of Foundation officers made the prospect of continued operation difficult. We explored many options that would allow the Foundation to continue. Unfortunately, there was no suitable way to keep the organization functioning.
The Foundation hotspot program will end and all automatic payments will be canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this is a complex program that cannot operate without careful management.
Any remaining funds in the Foundation accounts will be donated to Ninnekah Public Schools, in accordance with our bylaws.
It is a pleasure serving the community for the past five years.
The Ninnekah Public School Foundation will host an online bucket auction to raise funds toward expanding the Foundation’s programs next school year. The Foundation President will be contacting local businesses in search of auction items and anyone interested in donating an item can contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is a Bucket Auction?
A bucket auction or a basket raffle is a type a raffle where participants by a number of chances and then choose to put the chances in the “bucket” of the prizes they want to win. For example, after a Ninnekah supporter bought 100 chances, they could put 70 toward the prize they want the most, 20 toward the prize they had some interest in and the remaining 10 toward prizes with little interest. An individual could also put all their chances toward on prize they had great interest in winning. A chance is drawn from each bucket and the owner of that chance wins the prize.

The last two months of the year are when nonprofits receive most of their donations, either because individuals and businesses feel more giving during the holidays or because they want deductions for their taxes. This year, the Ninnekah Public School Foundation is seeking donations to expand the programs supporting Ninnekah families and teachers.
The Foundation Internet Program has expanded to the point that it is now self-sustaining, while also providing support to individuals experiencing financial hardship. The Foundation intends to build on this success by offering greater support for Ninnekah programs and, eventually, offering scholarships for Ninnekah students. These efforts will require more funding.

The Ninnekah Public School Foundation recently received a gift from a generous individual to help pay for the entries of students who will exhibit livestock at the Oklahoma Youth Expo in March. The Foundation would like to build on this generous gift so that this benefit can be extended to as many students as possible and so will accept additional donations specifically for this purpose.
Any donation that mentions OYE in the notes will be directed specifically for this purpose.
