The Nido Funding Club's (NFC) mission is to provide High School clubs with an additional way to receive funding for their projects.
This online platform allows you to donate to clubs and projects that you want to support. Once The Nido Funding Club receives your donations, your money will be distributed to the clubs of your choice, minus a 5% transaction fee. The funds from this transaction fee will be used as a reserve fund to donate to clubs in need of extra support.
