Support Spotlight

Did you know you can automate your annual gift to the NATA Foundation, and spread it out in monthly increments (making your giving more manageable with your household budget)?  Establishing recurring monthly gifts allows you to commit your support to the AT Profession (through the Foundation) then not worry about making your gift – it is done automatically.   Your giving instructions can be changed at anytime (no contracts involved).
You can enroll here.
