March Matching Gift Challenge


Our construction on the new NCS instructor dormitory is coming along great, and we are excited to watch the progress. The plumbing, HVAC, electrical, sprinkler, and alarm systems are installed. Now we're starting to build out the interior.

But we need your help! Generous friends have committed to match $30,000, dollar-for-dollar, in new gifts and pledges made to the Homeport Capital Campaign during the month of March!! Please support us with a gift or pledge (can be up to 3 years), and help us finish the dorm for our instructors to live in this summer.

We are SO grateful to the donors and the construction team who have helped us get this far. Please consider a donation, no matter the amount, to our Homeport Capital Campaign.
