The NVCA is a not-for-profit organization, so our work relies on funding from governments, businesses and individuals like you. 

There are several programs that you can direct your support to. For example, for $150, you can send a child to Camp Tiffin for one week, and the NVCA will contribute by waiving the $25 registration fee for each sponsored child. Donations of smaller amounts can also be made towards camp sponsorships. 

To see the list of funds you can support and to make your donation online, just visit our profile at For information on other ways to support the NVCA or how to send funds by mail, visit our Donations page. Thank you!
