Donations, from corporate sponsors and subscribers enable The News & Observer to offer classroom sets of newspapers, materials and teacher workshops for CEU credit to public and private schools grades K-12 and accredited literacy programs in our home-delivery area.

Vacation Donations:
Our regular newspaper subscribers also help sponsor newspapers to classrooms by making vacation donations. When they are going on vacation and call customer service (829-4700 locally or 1-800-522-4205) for long distance to stop their newspapers, they ask to donate their funds for that week to NIE.

Bill donations:
Subscribers may check a box provided on their bills to donate any amount to nie.

How to become a sponsor?
If you or someone you know is interested in becoming an nie sponsor, either by making a donation or by sponsoring one of our many educational programs or newspaper features, call Courtney Clark, nie Manager, at 919-829-8921.
