Gift  of  Sustainability

This year we have experienced many unfortunate circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. These have prevented us from receiving the necessary funds from our annual convention that we rely on to sustain our operation and the many ministries of the NCCW.

We are asking you to consider making a tax-deductible donation to the NCCW as a gift of sustainability. These funds will be used to continue our operations and fund expenses such as rent, payroll, and other costs associated with running an organization of our size.

Please send your gift to:
