The Friends plan fundraising events and community outreach activities in collaboration with NCEF Beneficiaries throughout the year and have helped to expand awareness of NCEF’s impact on the community. Going into their fourth year they are excited to evolve and grow as a committee and participate more in depth with the mission of improving the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in our community.
The Friends play a key role within the NCEF organization. For the 2016-2017 year, the Friends group will be more involved with the charities supported by NCEF through hands on volunteer projects. The group will continue to recruit professionals in the community with a goal of continuing to develop the next generation of community involvement and philanthropy through leadership and educational opportunities provided by NCEF.
