Capacity Campaign

Launching Year Two of NESEA's Capacity Campaign
A message from Rob Meyers:

As a Board Member and Chair of the Development Committee, I am pleased to announce the launch of Year 2 of NESEA’s Capacity Campaign!

NESEA launched the Capacity Campaign in 2017 to support our operating budget and help us fulfill the promise of our strategic plan. Over the past year we raised almost $90,000 through this campaign—almost triple what we raise in a typical year.

As we move into the second year of the campaign, we will continue to expand our work and impact, and we hope to engage many more donors.

I donate to NESEA because I value the opportunity to connect with and learn from this fantastic community of dedicated professionals. To me, it’s an investment with incredible returns. Read more...
