NSF’s membership dues cover about half of our expenses, which include our part-time executive director and program director who organize our programs and maintain our organization.  We also need funds to occasionally cover the expense of bringing in quality speakers for our forums.

Friends of the Forum are a critical group of donors who help cover the other half of our expenses.

NSF Members can become a Friend of the Forum for $1,000 a year, which is fully tax-deductible.

In return, you receive the following benefits:

  • Preferred Seating at our Forum meetings
  • Ability to sit with the Speaker the day of the Forum
  • Exclusive dinners with guest speakers the night before or after a Forum (when available)
  • Recognized as a Friend at each program and on our website

We hope you will consider joining us to help sustain the National Security Forum.
