Discover their potential.

Since 1996, Northstar has helped students from a variety of backgrounds and with an array of needs to discover their true potential.

How can you help support Northstar?

Make a Donation

Northstar does not receive any state or federal assistance — and we must cover the gap between tuition prices and the actual cost to educate each student. From our Lindamood-Bell Reading Program to ongoing technological advancements, we are able to continue providing our students an exceptional, customized education thanks to our donors’ ongoing generosity.  You can help us do even more for the lives and development of our students at Northstar.  We are most grateful for your consideration.

Northstar's Annual Gala

We love celebrating the successes of Northstar and its students at our annual gala each spring. Visit our Gala page for more details about next year’s event.

Supporting Northstar can provide a 65% Virginia State Tax Credit:

Northstar is an approved organization under the Neighborhood Assistance Act Tax Credit Program for Education (NAP) and the Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credit Program (EIS). These programs allow businesses and individuals to receive state tax credits of up to 65% of the donation. We receive a limited amount of NAP credits each year and provide them on a first come basis. EIS program credits are offered based on the number of qualifying students receiving scholarships each year.

Please consult your tax advisor before making a donation as we are not qualified to offer tax advice.
