The NENA Christmas Appeal
NENA's Christmas Appeal has raised $5,370 in donations from neighbors. NENA will match every dollar contributed to the NENA Aid Program, by individuals and businesses. Each $50 donation, for instance, has become $100 of community support. On January 8th, NENA will distribute equal shares to the following organizations doing essential community support work:
The NENA Aid Program
The North End Neighborhood Association is playing a significant role in mitigating the local effects of the current crisis. Though NENA is obviously identified with the North End, we are also part of the wider Boise community and will not restrict our efforts to the North End.
NENA acts as an aggregator. We do not claim to have the experience or resources to offer our own community service programs, so we will raise and allocate funding to partners with excellent frontline service efforts.
So far, NENA has distributed $32,000, from donations and its own reserves, to a number of important local organizations doing critical community service:
We plan to do a lot more – with your help. NENA has formed a committee of three NENA Board members and three outside members to drive the effort. We’re asking you (individuals and businesses) to contribute in any amount to support our community.
NENA is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. Contributions generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. They may be deductible as trade or business expenses, if ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business. If taking a deduction is important to you, please consult your tax adviser or donate directly to the organizations listed here.
