UPDATE – August 10, 2022.
A few months ago, we launched a campaign to offer financial assistance to November Project members from around the world to attend NPSUMMIT. We received a dozen applications and fundraised a few hundred dollars towards our $4500 goal to bring up to 3 members to Philadelphia. After the tragic passing of NP Malaysia Co-leader, Robert Ling, we pivoted fundraising efforts in order to support his family and to cover the cost of his repatriation. With 6 weeks to go before the event, the Committee in charge of the financial assistance program composed of Co-leaders and members has decided to halt the outreach until the end of the year and focus their efforts on the 2023 Summit.
While this is an unfortunate decision, we believe that under the existing circumstances and the tight timeline we’re working with, it is the right decision. The applicants have been informed of the details and understand the reasoning.
Going forward, the committee will review the tactics and the learnings and will outline the fundraising plan for 2023. The tax-deductible donations received this year will be rolled into the following year’s budget.
On behalf of the NP Summit Travel Assistance Committee, thank you for your understanding and support.
A first stab at making NPSUMMIT more accessible. Looking for that sign to attend Summit? This is it.
You’ve seen the posts. You’ve heard about the hype. What IS November Project Summit?
Each year, NPers around the world gather for a short but intense weekend of racing, cheering, and connecting with one another. (Racing optional)
As fun as it is, as lively as it is, as FOMO-inducing as it is, we know that for some, it’s just not a feasible expense. So, this year we are trying something out. And if it goes well, we’d like to do it again next year. Maybe even bigger?
This year, we are fundraising an NPSUMMIT Travel Grant for up to 3 people from across the globe to attend NPSUMMIT 10 in Philadelphia, September 16-18, 2022 (up to a $1500 value). *We will be making travel and hotel arrangements for recipients.
Here are the deets:
Applications will be accepted through June 30
Review process will be in July, and grant recipients will be notified by end of July
Travel arrangements will be made for recipients shortly after being notified
