Generosity through generations

Jimmy Pursell grew his company into one of the largest producers of coated fertilizer in the world. Today, his son, David, is using the business to support needy children as he inspires his own children to be generous through their Giving Funds.


Your support of NCF's ministry

When you open a Giving Fund, you not only experience an exciting new way to give, you also join a worldwide community of givers who have helped send over $10 billion to 55,000 charities. To fund this level of impact, we retain a small monthly amount accrued daily, based on the ending balance for that day. For example, 1/365th of 1 percent is assessed each day for Funds with a balance under $1,000,000. Funds will be assessed a minimum of $20 a month.
