Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, NAUDL has grown tremendously over the decade. Last year, more than 10,154 students directly benefited from your support (Seventy-six percent of urban debaters are from low-income families and 86% are students of color). This year, with your help, more students will benefit. To achieve this, we need increased support from corporate and foundation communities, as well as dedicated individuals like you. Together we are inspiring thousands of teens to have hope and confidence in their futures.

Your support can be in the form of an outright gift to support the expansion of urban debate leagues across the country. You can also consider a sponsorship opportunity at our National Championship and Annual Dinner by supporting an urban debate team and coach at the National Championship Tournament, Alumni Ambassadors who serve as assistant coaches and judges (sponsoring a team or an alumni ambassador includes travel, meals and lodging) or honor someone special by making a gift to NAUDL in their name.
