Become a Donor

Donors are the heart and soul of NCADD. In order to fulfill our Mission to fight the Nation's #1 health problem -- alcoholism and drug addiction --  NCADD relies on donations from individuals, families, foundations and corporations to support our life-saving work in public awareness, education, prevention, information and referral, intervention, treatment, recovery support and policy/advocacy. We do not accept gifts from the alcohol or tobacco industry and limit government funding to small grants for specific programs.

We need your help! Please become an NCADD donor and support our work. Your tax-deductible gift will help NCADD provide direct help and support to millions of individuals and families who rely on NCADD and our National Network of Affiliates. Over 80% of our revenue is spent on program services and NCADD has been given an A+ rating by the American Institute of Philanthropy. With your support we can advocate for expanded prevention programs, better access to treatment and recovery support for individuals and families, for fair treatment and an end to discrimination in insurance coverage, housing, employment, and educational rights. It will enable us to create fact sheets, brochures and other internet-based resources to help millions of people!
