Your support of the Annual Fund is extremely important to the financial well being of NSA because the corporations and foundations to whom we submit funding requests often ask, "What percentage of your parents, faculty, alumni, grandparents or past parents support your Annual Fund?" If the percentage of donors from the members of the NSA family is high, the foundation or corporation is more likely to approve our funding request. Gifts of any amount, large or small, are greatly appreciated.
The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy Annual Fund is an important element in the school's operating budget that supports the mission of the school and is the key component to the school’s continued growth and success. In an effort to ensure that the Annual Fund receives top priority in the school’s fundraising efforts, to avoid conflicting fundraising practices and to standardize the look of all of NSA’s printed and branded materials, the Board of Trustees adopted a Fundraising and Marketing Policy in 2006.
Any fundraising, marketing or special advertising activity sponsored by a Nansemond-Suffolk Academy club, class, athletic team and parent or alumni group must be approved in advance by the appropriate Division Head and the Office of Advancement. All items (baseball caps, tee shirts, uniforms, literature, invitations, handbooks, pamphlets, etc.) featuring the name, initials or logo of Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, must be approved by the Office of Advancement prior to the order being placed.
Applications are to be completed at least two weeks in advance for each activity and must be filed on an annual basis, including previous or recurring events, with the Director of Advancement before solicitation commences or orders for printing of materials are placed. To receive a list of official NSA approved colors and logos or to obtain a copy of the Fundraising, Marketing and Advertising Request Form, please contact the Office of Advancement at 539-8789 ext. 3234. The Fundraising, Marketing and Advertising Request Form is also attached below.
Thank you for your support and Live Generously today!
