Join the NATA Foundation’s Triple D Challenge
The NATA Foundation – the fundraising arm of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association – relies on the generosity of students, ATs and friends of the profession to provide scholarships, research grants and educational programs to advance athletic training. In an effort to increase this critical support, we’ve initiated a contest to see which NATA Districts can increase the number of members who donated to the NATA Foundation from 2013 to 2014.
The Double Your District Donors Challenge (“Triple D” Challenge) aims to increase awareness of the NATA Foundation and its programs, while at the same time getting NATA members at all levels into the habit of giving back to their profession. Remember – the act of giving is often more important than the size of the gift.
Give today and be sure to check our website in the coming weeks to see which District is ahead of the pack!
