What is a Foundation Challenger?

To encourage participation in the NHS Foundation and plan for the Spring Gala, the Foundation “challenges” parents and community members to support NHS financially. When you accept a “Challenge,” you agree to raise $1,000 through a personal tax-deductible donation to the Foundation or to solicit outside donations or Gala ticket sales totaling $1,000.
