Support NNSTOY on Giving Tuesday and Beyond


Last year NNSTOY raised $19,801 during our Annual Fundraiser,

just shy of our $20,000 goal! 


This year our Fundraiser kicks off on #GivingTuesday (December 3, 2019),

and we need your help in making our campaign more powerful than ever before.



How you can help:

This year, it’s more important than ever as we build a stronger NNSTOY in 2020 aligned with our strategic refresh. In lieu of dues, we are asking you to consider:

    • Adding $1 or $2 more per month to your donation (that's only $12 or $24 more).
      • Example: if you donated $20 last year, consider donating $32 or $44; if you donated $120 last year, consider donating $132 or $144
    • Becoming a monthly donor ($10-20 month is a great way to break it down and make it affordable while still making a difference).
    • If you'd like to get more involved, see how you can support the media campaign (below)
