DONATIONS

The NBMA doesn’t have a membership fee. Instead, we ask that our members make voluntary donations to support the organization and to provide scholarships to deserving high school students. Since the NBMA is a not-for-profit organization, 100% of your donation is tax deductible.

YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS SHOULD BE SENT TO:
