From the Desk of the NEF Chair
The calendar year-end is rapidly approaching. Many
use charitable giving as part of their tax management
and NEF can be part of that planning strategy. We have
accepted memorials and honorariums in the past and
will continue to do so in the future.
An honorarium can be made to celebrate or
acknowledge someone by donating in their name. NEF
acknowledges these events to help give the person
the recognition they deserve. There is no set price or
rate, a giver simply remits the amount they choose.
A memorial is intended to commemorate someone
or something. We have had some in the past that were
one-time events and others that are an annual event,
like the Cliff Brown Award.
Of course a donation of any type is appreciated. Just
helping fund education is reason enough to give. But
if you do have an honorarium or memorial in mind, feel
free to reach out to NEF and we can have the discussion. We couldn't have gotten as far as we have without
the generosity of so many and will continue to rely on
the industry to help us keep teaching.
