Sponsorship Fund

Sponsorships and donations are an integral part of NADF's (Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund) marketing and promotional activities.  NADF views these activities both as an investment and as an opportunity to connect with customers and colleagues in the communities we serve.  As a non-profit organization, the NADF Sponsorship Fund recieves its monies from the proceeds from corporate events.
