Thank You

Submitted by David

This year NHF is celebrating our 25th anniversary. We are what is known as a "publicly supported nonprofit organization", or 501(c)3 as the IRS calls it. We haven't stayed around this long because we worked really hard, wrote a lot grants, or sold a lot of DVDs and popcorn, although that all helps. The real reason we are still in business has to do with that "publicly supported" part. Two crucial ways the public supports us is by joining as members and donating to our Annual Appeal.
