Why Now: In today’s world of heightened incivility, where extremist politics, race-fueled violence, and clashing ideologies rip apart campuses and communities, NCRC’s work is more necessary and relevant than ever.
Vision: Since the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) was launched in 1983 as a grassroots mediation center in Golden Hill, we have extended the reach of our services into 12 countries on four continents and across six Cabinet-level departments. Celebrating its 35th anniversary, NCRC established an endowment that will help put the organization on solid financial footing in perpetuity and ensure the sustainability, scalability, and elevation of NCRC’s singular mission and signature programs.
Goal: $20 million by 2020.
Rationale: Assuming a four percent annual return, a $20 million endowment will yield $800,000 in investment income annually to support and sustain NCRC’s four key initiatives, all of which are poised to be national models. Funds will replace at-risk funding and meet specific needs, such as program expansion.
