Community Projects & Fundraisers for Springfield, MO

North Springfield offers the first impression of our beautiful city to visitors who enter from the Springfield-Branson National Airport and I-44. While the physical boundaries of north Springfield end at St. Louis St. and College St., we at the North Springfield Betterment Association consider the entire city of Springfield a participating factor in the welfare of our neighborhoods in north Springfield. The NSBA welcomes all individuals, businesses, and organizations interested in the improvement and vitalization of north Springfield to join our membership.


Elementary School Attendance Program

NSBA has held an Attendance Party for the past 20 years that recognizes a student who has 99% or better attendance at school. This past year we had over 500 students, from the 13 north Springfield elementary schools, qualify to attend our celebration of their success.

The event is possible due to the generous support of private donations, community fundraisers and our NSBA corporate members. If you'd like to help support this effort, speak to a board member for more information.

Scholarship Funds

NSBA awards two scholarships, the Ann Reed Memorial Scholarship and the Wade Scholarship Endowment Fund, to selected graduating seniors of Hillcrest High School and Central High School.
