What is your legacy?

What does it mean to leave behind a meaningful legacy?

Many would say it’s leaving the world a better place than you found it.

With polarizing political messages, discrimination, bias and bigotry in focus across the country, building communities that are respectful and just for all has never been more important. Help NCCJ in our mission to empower today’s youth to build inclusive communities and gain the leadership skills needed to face tomorrow’s challenges.

How?

At NCCJ ANYTOWN® high school youth spend five days focusing on social justice, community building and leadership. Students make lifelong friends while having one of the most valuable experiences of their lives.

You can help make this experience happen. From November through January, Newman’s Own is celebrating Giving Tuesday and the giving season with grants from their $500,000 Holiday Challenge. Help us rise to the challenge this giving season. You are crucial to us reaching our goal.

Let's send more students to NCCJ ANYTOWN® than ever before.

Give here.


About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
