The Civic Engagement Fund
NOWCastSA's Civic Engagement Fund supports live webcasts, video productions and multimedia projects directly related to local government and elections. (See projects below.)
NOWCastSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit supported through grants, sponsorships, underwriting and donations from individuals and organizations. Its mission is to promote and facilitate an inclusive civic conversation, which it does through education, training, community news, events and multimedia. Managing Director Charlotte-Anne Lucas launched the Civic Engagement Fund in 2015 to ensure NOWCastSA would be able to continue and expand coverage of community activities that empower residents to make informed decisions at the polls and increase voter turnout.
Your gift to the Civic Engagement Fund ensures NOWCastSA can open the room for candidate forums, budget hearings and town halls so community members can be there from anywhere and stay involved.
Corporate sponsorships start at $1,000. Checks made out to "NOWCastSA" can be sent to NOWCastSA, 600 Soledad, 6th Floor, San Antonio, TX 78205. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invoice.
Individuals can join the fund and become a Good Neighbor with any gift of $25 or more by clicking here.
