Naz Giving Day 2023: Thank you!

We are Naz: We did it! 

On Wednesday, the entire Nazareth community proved what’s possible when we all come together. Not only did we surpass our Naz Giving Day goal of 1,800 gifts in 24 hours, but our collective impact reached a new record of over $580,000 raised from more than 1,900 gifts! Your generosity will make an immediate and meaningful difference in the lives of students and forge a brighter future for all. Thank you for this remarkable support.
