Demand for nabs services has more than doubled in the last 5 years; in 2019, we impacted over 3000 industry professionals and families. Year after year, demand for our programs and services are out-pacing our revenue intake. nabs month was created to build awareness and generate funds to close this gap.
Due to the current crisis, the nabs team has decided to postpone our annual nabs month campaign to the fall of 2020, which is a national, month-long series of events and fundraising activities in all our markets, in partnership with our community to raise critical funds to meet the changing needs of professionals in our industry. We will be running activities of our own in the fall, and we are asking our partners to join in to help us celebrate what makes our industry so special, it’s people. Partner firms will plan their own internal activities during the month to raise awareness of the programs and services that nabs provides, raise funds for their industry charity, nabs, and to have some fun with their colleagues.
The firms that joined us in 2019 were: FUSE Marketing Group, DentsuBos, Publicis, DDB, Agency 59, Junction 59, BBDO, FCB, No Fixed Address, OMD, Rethink, Zulu Alpha Kilo, Apex PR, Edelman, Leo Burnett, McCann, Cossette, Ethnicity, lg2, The&Partnership, Cairns Oneil, Havas Media and Strategic Objectives.
Last year nabs month activities raised over $60,000.00. NFA alone raised an incredible $16,000.00. Our 2020 nabs month goal is to double 2019’s performance. So if your company didn’t participate last year and you want to get involved, take a look at the toolkit that has everything that you need to get started at your company!
