Founder's Day 2024

As we celebrate Olga Murray’s remarkable life this Founder’s Day, we’re also honoring her dearest wish: for her work in Nepal to continue. Our fundraising goal this year is $340,000 in honor of Olga’s 34 years of impact in Nepal. NYF is deeply grateful for each and every gift made in her honor to support our programs.


This year’s Founder’s Day event will be special. NYF President Som Paneru will lead us in reflecting on our late founder Olga Murray’s extraordinary life and in celebrating her transformative legacy in Nepal.

We hope you can join us on May 30th.
