This year NABO has launched a program to help facilitate the participation of Basque youth who might encounter financial difficulties.  It was named in honor of Aita Martxel Tillous, in honor of his many years of working with our Basque youth and his ceaseless desire to see our Basque culture preserved. 

If you would like to make a contribution, mail your contribution to:

Aita Martxel Tillous Youth Aid Fund

c/o Grace Mainvil, NABO Treasurer
705 Nicklaus Lane
Eagle, ID 83616

Application for this year (2009) is over for now, next year we'll be using something as
2009 NABO Youth Aid Fund Application

CONTEXT: When it is possible, money should not be the only reason why young people cannot participate in NABO youth events.  That is why NABO is setting up a youth aid fund. NABO has appropriated funds and donations have been made.

NAME:  This fund is named in honor of Aita Martxel Tillous, our Basque-American chaplain, for the last 14 years.

APPLICATION ELIGIBILITY.  It is need based, and this will be determined purely by the numbers.  A copy of last year's Federal tax form is required.  Only one person NABO Treasurer Grace Mainvil, will know the identity of the applicant and she will not be sharing this information to preserve people's privacy.
