You are here

There are many tangible and intangible benefits that come from your membership with NSFA. First and foremost, by joining your National Association, you are lending your voice and your advocacy to the only organization in the country who is focused solely on your success. Secondly, you are connecting to a network of "your people". The role of an education foundation leader is unique and typically you are the only one in your community. We provide ways for you to meet others who are doing this work so that you can learn together, grow together and support each other. Lastly, there are many savings to be had by joining NSFA. We firmly believe in not reinventing the wheel. The time you save in using a proven tool that someone else has developed will alone be worth the cost of membership. So, why go it alone? Join NSFA today.
