NASW Foundation Annual Fund Mission
The National Association of Social Workers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization created to support NASW’s educational and charitable initiatives through a wide range of programs and projects. The Foundation serves three primary audiences, known as the Three Ps:
- the profession – by honoring and investing in social workers past, current, and future;
- the practitioner – by enhancing social workers’ knowledge and skills; and,
- the public – by providing information and resources to help individuals, families and communities.
Fundraising activities for the NASW Foundation Annual Fund are essential to pay for operating expenses, including staff salaries, overhead, and the programmatic costs that enable us to serve these audiences. We fund these expenses with voluntary contributions from donors, including friends, NASW members, corporations, and others; as well as awards and grants from government agencies, foundations, and other entities interested in our work. The NASW Foundation is not funded through NASW Membership dues. Certain states require written disclosures for nonprofit organizations soliciting contributions.
