PRESS LAUNCH FOR 14TH ANNUAL NATIONAL TELETHON
The National Community Foundation (NCF) announces that the 14th Annual National Telethon is slated for May 28th 2017. This year’s PRESS LAUNCH will take place on Thursday 30th March 2017 at 10: a.m. in the Conference Room of the National Community Foundation on High Street.
Though the NCF receives an annual subvention from the National Insurance Corporation which is used to fund some of the programs currently offered, the NCF is solely responsible for raising the additional funds required for administrative expenses and additional programs, hence the Telethon was conceptualized and continues to be the major fundraiser for the organization.
The NCF was established by an act of parliament in August 2002 and is a philanthropic, non-profit, non-governmental organization that functions primarily as a grant making institution. The Foundation supports initiatives that engender self-development and social upliftment through the provision of assistance to emerging individual and community needs in education, health, social services, arts and culture, community development, environment and civic affairs.
Persons interested in making donations before and after the Telethon may do so by depositing funds to one of the following bank account:
Bank of St Lucia – Account#104511121,
First National Bank – Account # 8405087 or by donating
Online at www.ncfstlucia.lc.
Persons wishing to make donations during the hosting of the Telethon should tune in to the NTN TV Channel from 1:00 pm and call in to the telephone numbers which will be displayed on the screen during the broadcast.
