NACDEP Endowment for Sustainability Campaign

To help ensure a strong future for NACDEP and community development programming, please consider donating today!

NACDEP is raising funds with the primary goal of advancing the Association through an endowment for sustainability, sponsorships for visibility and connectivity, and providing scholarships for accessibility. 

Help us reach our first fund raising goal of $25,000 towards the NACDEP Endowment. Every donation, no matter its size is greatly appreciated. You can make a one-time contribution or sign up for recurring payments for as little as $5 per month. 

Why give to the NACDEP Endowment?

  • Support the mission of NACDEP.
  • Create a sustainable means of supporting scholarships.
  • Honor of a co-worker, friend, family member, or colleague.
  • Increase NACDEP’s capacity to support targeted efforts such as awards, professional development, and marketing in perpetuity to provide assistance year after year.


Thank You to our NACDEP Endowment Donors!
