An appeal from a fellow alum

 

Dear Fellow NHD Alum,

 

You know firsthand the impact NHD has on students. NHD develops reading, writing, research, and analytical skills in a way that no other academic program can match. NHD encourages students to develop their own analysis of world events, to differentiate between credible and biased sources, and to articulate an argument with the real-world pressures of brevity, balance, and supporting authority.

NHD helped prepare me for the challenges of college and my career like no other experienceMy passion for the power of this program is why I am asking you to join me in donating to NHD this year in an unusual time of need. In my current role as the Vice President of NHD’s Board of Trustees, I can assure you that NHD needs our support more than ever to fill a critical budget gap.

             

NHD is launching a giving campaign next month. To kick off that effort I am asking you, my fellow alumni, to join me in showing NHD's many audiences that we, the people who directly benefited from this unique program, believe in it and its future. I hope that NHD’s alumni can raise at least $10,000 by October 31. Your contribution will motivate and inspire the parents, teachers, friends, and family of NHD to give what we gave.  

 

No gift is too large or too small; a gift in any amount will be put to excellent use. A donation of just $25 will help NHD reach approximately five students across the country. And, a donation of $100 or more will help NHD reach the equivalent of an entire classroom. Please join me in contributing whatever you can, and together we can keep history alive and allow today’s students to have the same powerful NHD experience that we both shared.
