From devastating hurricanes to amazing personal triumphs, 2017 was a year of great challenges and even greater giving at NCF. As we embrace a new year in our journey of generosity together, let’s take a look back at some of the topics and stories that shaped our world this past year.

  1. Ways to give after a natural disaster (blog): Perhaps nothing shaped giving more in 2017 than the disasters that devastated thousands of lives in the U. S. and around the globe. From Category 5 hurricanes to relentless wildfires, givers wanted to know the best ways to use their NCF Giving Fund after a natural disaster.

  2. This is Generosity! (video): In this inspiring video, we take you behind the scenes at NCF to meet some of our staff from around the country and get a glimpse of how we're expressing generosity personally and through our grantmaking to charities. If you want to put a face to your giving at NCF, be sure to watch This is Generosity!

  3. Lauren Scruggs Kennedy finds beauty in brokenness (podcast): This testimony of a young woman who turned her pain into a passion for helping others struck a chord with many of our Inside Giving podcast listeners. Lauren Scruggs Kennedy is a former model who was injured in a devastating airplane propeller accident. Today, she transforms lives through her Giving Fund by providing high-quality prosthetics for those who cannot afford them. Listen to our inspiring interview with Lauren, because it’s worth hearing again.
