With all of the hullabaloo over Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday behind us, the attention turns to giving.
We know there are many choices for giving and we ask that you consider giving to the NANPA Foundation in at least one of the following ways as your support for nature photography:
1.) Give a gift supporting NANPA’s high school nature photography program
Students walk away from the program with unforgettable experiences, friends, mentors and images. Learn more about the program and how you can make a difference in a budding nature photographer’s life at https://givingtuesday.razoo.com/us/story/Nanpahsprogram.
NANPA Foundation is crowdfunding through December 2nd to raise $15,000 to support the NANPA High School Scholarship Program for the next three years. This program gives ten high school students each year a hands-on, intensive opportunity in the Great Smoky Mountains to learn nature photography and impactful storytelling from nature photography professionals.

- Awarding conservation grants – We expect the 2016 Philip Hyde Grant recipient to be named by the end of the year.
- Funding student programs – Recipients of the 2017 NANPA Summit College Photography Scholarships will be announced in January and applications for the 2017 high school program will be available in January.
