I am a fundraiser for

The Fund for the NRV

Why I support the Fund for the NRV:

During my time as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Paraguay, I learned that feeding a community isn't as easy as planting a garden for them. You must instead nurture their desire to grow their own gardens. This is not knowledge that can be developed rapidly; it is a long process of dedication and inspiration. It took me a long time to learn that lesson--but it is one that resonates through all my subsequent charitable actions. 

When I give to the Fund for the NRV during GiveBigNRV Giving Day, I feel as if my money is going farther: 

1. They are a resource in our community that has the tools for greater change
2. They focus on intiatives that are sustainable, long-term, and volatile in our region
3. They are varied and multi-faceted, which means the money impacts several needs within the community

The Four Focuses: 

1. First Steps: Investing in Early Childhood Education and Development
2. Aging in Place: Encouraging Lifespan-Friendly Communities
3. Nonprofit Leadership Institute: Developing Nonprofit Leadership Skills
4. Thrive: Supporting Nutritional & Health
