ANC Foundation Matching Donor Program 2017

All industry members are invited to participate in the 2017 matching donor program. Your contributions directly support the mission of the Foundation. 

This year, seven scholarships were granted to students pursuing a career in financial planning. In addition to covering tuition expenses for the top winner, contributions from NAGDCA members helped to cover travel expenses to bring the scholarship winners to the annual conference. In addition, your donations provided travel stipends to support the NAGDCA Quiz Bowl participants. 

We hope you'll consider supporting this worthy cause. Companies who sign up to participate in the program agree to match, up to their pledged amount, the donations pledged/received by both public and private sector conference attendees from donations made related to the annual conference, September 24-27.
