2017 End-of-Year Fund Drive

Help keep NCDD going strong! Please make a contribution to NCDD during our end of the year fund drive, and help us continue to serve our extraordinary community of innovators.

Our Fund Drive Message:

Since 2002, NCDD has served as a hub, a resource clearinghouse, and a facilitative leader for the dialogue and deliberation community. Together with our extraordinary members, we have been a catalyst for connection and progress across our field.

In a time of intense political divides and seemingly unsolvable global problems, bringing people together to discuss values, issues, and solutions in depth is more needed than ever. NCDD serves the community of innovators who convene and mobilize people across the globe to bridge divides and make decisions together. Learn more about NCDD’s accomplishments.

We are asking you to contribute to the organization’s end of year fund drive. Our goal is $15,000. As always, your donations are tax deductible.

See the amazing testimonials our wonderful contributors, if you need an extra nudge!

NCDD’s end-of-year fund drive runs through December 31st.  Contribute today!
