March challenge: donate this month and your gift will be matched!


For the month of March, two special donors challenge you to donate to NSI and help double the impact of their gifts. This means for every $1 you donate before March 31, our donors will also contribute $1. That’s double the impact!

You empower our storytellers


The support of the NSI community was incredible during our December giving campaign. Today, we are proud to publish a list of generous individuals whose donations have already been put towards the important work of training our students.
