NHD needs YOU

Dear Friend:

National History Day® needs your help.

While the program is as strong as ever, we find ourselves facing a financial challenge. One of our major donors has decided to go in a different direction from National History Day and put his support elsewhere. Unfortunately, this news came to us quite recently, with only a few months left in our fiscal year. To fill this gap, we must raise $800,000 by August.

You have participated in NHD as a student, teacher, judge or parent and seen firsthand the amazing impact NHD has on young people. You have experienced how NHD can transform students’ lives. And you know that a quality study of history is vitally important to our democracy—to preparing engaged and thoughtful citizens. NHD provides that type of study.

With that in mind, I am hoping I can count on your support through this challenging time by making a contribution to National History Day today. If everyone donates just $50, we will be half way to our goal. We hope you might consider more, but want you to know that we will appreciate any amount that you can give.

I am working hard to recruit new sponsors for NHD and am confident that we will be back on track when the new school and program year starts in September. I am equally confident that, with your help, National History Day will find itself on fine financial footing come August.

Donate today!

Thank you for participating and supporting National History Day.
