Announcing the 2018 Intern/Scholarship Fund Matching Contributions Challenge!
Donate today and your contribution will be matched!
You can contribute to NOS’s most important current program–research and education on the endangered Ghost Orchid. A small group of NOS members is challenging you to give a donation to assure that the critical 4th year of data collection necessary for this research will happen in 2018.
Double your gift! Each donation you give to this restricted fund for 2018 scholarships, will be matched, dollar for dollar, until the matching funds are gone. Think BIG! The Challenge will run through December, 2017.
No contribution is too small, but we are hoping you will give generously. NOS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your gift may be tax-deductible. Click here to learn more!
