One of our core values at NSS is "We thrive when you thrive."
The many fitness achievements by our clients lay the foundation for our success, which allows us to facilitate fundraising projects, which channel our collective power to create a lasting impact on our community.
In early 2021, we created the IMPACT Circle.
This is a monthly giving program that allows our clients to add any amount to their regular monthly payment, and that extra amount is given to a local charity.
With an average donation size of only $8 per month from our participating clients, we've now helped 29 different local charities, totaling more than $9000!
We are always open to hearing about new charities that fit our guidelines (local, non-religious, non-political), as we don't plan to double up on past donations. Hit us up with any great ideas!
For multiple years we've had a special focus on the Douglas County Relay for Life and Alexandria Dollars for Scholars, and we host separate fundraisers for them.
Our first year fundraising for Relay for Life was $1000, and it has absolutely transformed, becoming $18,015 in 2023, with a lifetime total over $78,000.
Our eight years of fundraising for Alexandria Dollars for Scholars has now provided 33 scholarships totaling $36,750. Our 2023 donation amount provided 8 students with $1025 each to help pay for further education in the arena of health & fitness.
It's the #NSSfamily - not NSS!
It is important to note that NSS did not make these donations.
We put in effort to galvanize our people, by organizing events and sending emails and writing posts and hanging signs and reminding, but in the end it is our #NSSfamily who actually makes it happen.
We are so grateful for their HUGE hearts!
