Continuing on from our successful philanthropic contributions in 2019 and 2020, the Northville Food & Wine Festival is pleased to announce the Northville Educational Foundation has been selected as the 2021 Northville Food & Wine Festival Beneficiary.



Founded in 2000 by a group of concerned Northville school parents and community leaders over changes to school funding in Michigan, the Northville Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to supporting enrichment programs to benefit Northville students in academics, the arts and athletics.

The Northville Educational Foundation supports enrichment programs that help celebrate a legacy of excellence and enhance the ways in which NPS is collectively opening a world of possibilities for its students. These programs advance the culture of learning and leadership; help reimagine curriculum and instruction; and further excellence for all students.
