Since 2006


FRIENDS of Northwest Classen has given over $500,000 in grants to NWC for programs and equipment.

Requesting nominations for the NWC Hall of Fame

This is what FRIENDS
is all about...

Alumni volunteers spend months planning the weekend of fundraising events.  Staff and Faculty at NWC submit proposals for basics and enhancements to educate our future at NWC  Those needs often exceed monies raised and the Grant Committee must make some very difficult decisions each year. The Grant Committee meets, visits the school, phones and emails teachers, checks on orders and investigates the best deal they can find. They calculate and recalculate to do their very best to spend the funds raised by so many FRIENDS of NWC in the most equitable way possible.

After six annual fundraising events, FRIENDS has:

  • Given over $300,000 directly in grants to NWC for programs and equipment.
  • Created an endowment at The Communities Foundation of Oklahoma to benefit the future of NWC.
  • Built a strong alliance and supportive relationship with the principal, the dedicated staff and faculty at NWC and the Oklahoma City School Board. 
  • Started a Capital Campaign to create a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Theatre at NWC in conjunction with MAPS for Kids renovations underway at this time.
