Naz Giving Day 2022


The fifth annual Naz Giving Day far exceeded our hopes and expectations and for that, we are so grateful. Thank you for showing up and for shining your light. 

In just one day, you fueled the future of Nazareth with your generosity. You touched the lives of students, you made an impact on our world, and you demonstrated that when Golden Flyers work together, the possibilities are endless. 

Thank you Nazareth!
