Campaign Reminder

As you know, a Wall of Honor recognizing NFB Capital Campaign contributors of $5,000 and above will have a prominent place in our new National Federation of the Blind Research and Training Institute. As our new facility nears completion, we want to confirm that we have your name as you want it to appear on the NFB Wall of Honor. Please call John Brennan at the National Center if you have made changes in the way you would like your name to appear. If your circumstances allow you to increase your pledge or gift enough to move to the next level on the Wall of Honor, we would be especially grateful for your gift. Please call John Brennan at (410) 659-9314 if you would like to increase your pledge or gift enough to move to the next level. If your gift or pledge was less than $5,000, this is an opportunity to increase your support enough to be recognized on our NFB Wall of Honor.

If you have not yet made a gift or pledge to the Campaign to Change What It Means to Be Blind, now is the time!

Here are the levels at which NFB Capital Campaign contributors will be recognized on the Wall of Honor:

$1,000,000 and above-‑Jernigan Circle

$500,000 and above-‑President's Circle

$250,000 and above-‑Director's Circle

$100,000 and above-‑Leader's Circle

$50,000 and above-‑Patrons

$25,000 and above-‑Partners

$10,000 and above-‑Benefactors

$5,000 and above-‑Fellows

NFB Capital Campaign Pledge payments may be made at any time and may be sent to: NFB Capital Campaign, 1800 Johnson Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21230

Please indicate that the check is for the NFB Capital Campaign in the check memo section, and please be sure to indicate "NFB Capital Campaign" on the pledge payment envelope.

If you have questions about your pledge payment status, contact John Brennan.


Have you made your campaign pledge yet? We need everyone's help. The construction cost of our projected National Federation of the Blind Research and Training Institute is 19.5 million dollars. Please take this opportunity to complete your pledge form. Without you our job will be just that much harder.
