What We Can Do with Your Support
Unrestricted contributions to UNA-NCA's general operating funds directly impact our ability to carry out our mission. Your generosity will enable us to create more active programs, host a variety of events, pay our staff, support our local community, and much more.
Annual membership dues amounted to less than five percent of our revenue in 2006. Furthermore, we share dues income with our national organization – UNA-USA. Therefore, we need your help in order to fill the gap!

Perdita Huston Human Rights Award Fund
PERDITA HUSTON (1936-2001), author and journalist, was committed to giving voice to women in developing countries. She focused her writing on the often-overlooked role of rural women. She recognized their struggle to survive, care for their families, and maintain their individuality in lives swept by change. Through her writing and activism, Ms. Huston demonstrated a life-long commitment to improving the status of women everywhere.
Upon her death, UNA-NCA decided to establish the Perdita Huston Human Rights Award to celebrate Perdita Huston and to recognize the life and work of others who are outstanding advocates for women's rights in the Third World.
