Donor Recognition

Noorthoek Academy has provided learning opportunities to adults with learning challenges for over three decades. Noorthoek is a non-profit organization that relies completely on the generosity of individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and foundations.

We rely on YOU! Donations range from $10.00 to $30,000--every dollar makes a difference in the lives of our students

We have been so fortunate to stay strong and true to our mission for so many years!
