Giving to NAE

Section Challenges Update - July 2018

In October 2016, NAE chair Gordon England announced the creation of a $100,000 Chairman's Challenge for Section 1 that he personally funded, and asked others to pledge their support of the NAE and fund giving challenges for their own sections. Thanks to his leadership, six more challenges were initiated. We are thrilled to report that the five challenges from 2017 met and surpassed their goals - congratulations to Sections 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7 for a successful year! Please take a look at a full breakdown on how these challenges finished. 

There are currently four new $100,000 matching challenge grants for 2018: R. Noel Longuemare has challenged Section 1, the Arindam Bose family has challenged Section 2, Chad Holliday has challenged Section 8, and the Blankenship family has challenged Section 12.
