Educator Excellence Award Program

Thrivent NCa/ELC Educator Excellence Award INVESTMENT Fund

Why: The establishment of our Educator Excellence Award fund is to honor and recognize our teachers who exemplify our mission and pursue excellence in the art of teaching. This program will enhance our effort to retain, grow, and attract inspiring Christian educators.

How awards are funded: The goal is to have $500,000 in an earmarked fund (Educator Excellence Investment Fund) that pays out a percentage of its growth into these awards each year. The $500,000 goal will be achieved through donor giving and fundraising. We have a five year plan to reach our goal which will then allow for a perpetual $20,000 a year to disperse to award recipients. Already $90,000 has been raised via our spring Walk-a-Thon fundraiser and Annual Fund donations!

Purpose: To honor and recognize through monetary awards our educators who exemplify our mission and pursue excellence.

When: Because of generous donors, we have the ability to start the award program this year while we simultaneously build the earmarked fund that will perpetually pay out! These awards will be selected at the end of May and given out to educators during our last day of school assembly.

Nomination/Qualification Process: A committee of teachers and administrators has been formed to develop the nomination process and qualifications for the award.

Selection: A selection committee will be put together to determine the award recipients. This can include administrators, school board members, and Northshore staff.

Award Amounts: The goal is to award $20,000 per year.

Missional Excellence Awards (10 given): Each recipient will receive $1500.

‘All In’ Award (2 given):

  • Each award recipient will receive $2,500
  • $2,000 will go directly to the employee in compensation. $500 will go toward further innovation and excellence in their classroom

Thank you for your investment in our teachers now and for the future. We are excited to honor and award educator excellence at NCA.
