Who can receive Days of Greatness?
Currently, an individual or family who is struggling is a prospective candidate of the Days of Greatness program through the Nathan Chris Baker Foundation. Struggling for us is not based on one identified area, such as an illness or loss, but includes anything that inhibits a person or family from enjoying life to its fullest on a daily basis. As is the vision of the Nathan Chris Baker Foundation, it is our goal to help provide individuals and families in need with the support necessary to Go Out and Be Great.

Are there any restrictions to Days of Greatness?

What are NCB’s sources of funding?
Days of Greatness is a project sponsored by the Nathan Chris Baker Foundation. We receive financial support from a number of sources. Contributions come from individuals, corporations, and private and foundation grants. The Nathan Chris Baker Foundation relies also on in-kind contributions which help to lessen the cost of goods and services.

How does NCB decide who will receive a Day of Greatness?
Currently, we are hoping to grant four special days a year and adopt a family at Christmas. Our board is committed to the program and will put a great amount of effort in determining the recipients of the Days of Greatness. As our program grows, we look forward to expanding the number of special days per year as well as increasing the geographical area in which we offer the program.
