Our Mission

In a time when competition for grant money is fierce, the NAILBA Charitable Foundation is dedicated to providing funds to small, well-run charities in your neighborhood that may not otherwise have access to additional funding.

The NAILBA Charitable Foundation is the philanthropic arm of NAILBA. Over the last ten years, Foundation grants have helped to give blind children the gift of “sight”, create whimsical rooms for desperately sick children, provide hope to homeless mothers and children, and ultimately achieve its mission of making dreams come true for those less fortunate.

The mission of the NAILBA Charitable Foundation is to encourage volunteerism among NAILBA members and provide grant funds to worthy charitable organizations that serve to enhance the quality of life for those less fortunate, with a special emphasis on children.
