The North End Neighborhood Association will play a significant role to mitigate 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 will act 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 $20,000 from 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.
