Its no April Fools joke this time….
From NENSA newsletter:
“Over the holidays, we received an anonymous contribution of $500,000 to our Endowment Fund! Yes, that’s half of a million. NENSA Executive Director Max Cobb had to sit down after opening the envelope, and when he told the Resource Development Committee, they weren’t sure whether to believe it or not. But, yes, the check has cleared and NENSA has the long-term security of a half million dollar endowment. The letter that accompanied the check described the donor as someone interested in amateur sports, youth and health.”
