Membership dues cover less than 40% of our operating costs. We always rely on the generosity of friends like you to ensure that NEST is here to stay as a permanent part of our community, but this is even more true in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your donation will allow us to engage more volunteers, organize a wider variety of programs, and give personal attention to every member request.

We are seeing an increased demand in the use of our remote services (specifically delivering groceries and other goods to our members) and you can rest assured that your donation is going to good use right away by helping to vet and on-board new volunteers to help meet this increased need. We want our members to be confident that we are here to support them in their time of need, but we can’t do that without your support.

Usually, your donation of…
$25 buys coffee & tea for one month of member groups/meetings
$50 connects a member with a neighborly volunteer
$100 mails one month’s newsletter to members without computers
$250 trains and supports a new volunteer
$500 coordinates one month’s events and programs

But right now, NEST is working hard to create ways of keeping our community engaged, active, and independent and that is going to take some extra funding. This crisis is creating a ripple effect that we are only beginning to understand. As we move through and eventually past the COVID-19 outbreak, we will continue to rely on your kindness to help us navigate a minefield of ever-evolving challenges. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for thinking of us in this time of need.
