NSA Conference Scholarship Fund

The NSA Scholarship Fund, named in honor of Barry Liben & Family, aims to provide financial assistance to individuals who face economic challenges in attending our Annual Conference. Initially established in 2006 by Barry Liben as a heartfelt tribute to his late father, Alvin, this fund has thrived over the years due to the unwavering support of the Liben family and the generous contributions from the NSA community. 

Research Fund

The NSA Research Fund is dedicated to providing funding for the advancement of knowledge and understanding in the field of stuttering. This fund aims to support research projects that focus on various aspects of stuttering, including treatment methods, assessment tools, and broader research inquiries. Through these endeavors, we strive to enhance our understanding of stuttering and contribute to developing practical approaches for people who stutter.

Fulcrum Fund

The Fulcrum Group is made up of individuals and families dedicated to furthering the NSA’s mission and its reach via active fundraising.

By donating via the Fulcrum Group, either as a branch owner or participant of a branch, you are ensuring that the NSA continues to deliver resources and support to the stuttering community, funds and vets relevant research, and fuels advocacy and outreach across all ages. Every dollar you donate contributes to the de-stigmatization of stuttering and helps to create a world where stuttering is understood, supported and normalized.
