“I think any industry has to take care of and be good stewards of their industry,” said Tony Malisani, Malisani Incorporated. “You can’t always ride in the wagon; sometimes you have to get out and pull a little bit. We not only need people’s support monetarily, but we also need their labor, their volunteer efforts, their help, their information. Those are the things that drive both the agenda of the Natural Stone Council and make it productive.”
Fundraising has enabled the NSC to make significant progress in their branding campaign for Genuine Stone® as well as supporting the Sustainability Committee on benchmarking studies and industry awareness initiatives. These efforts would be non-existent without the financial support of donors.
In the short-term, the NSC relies on major investments from stone industry associations as well as generous donations from individual companies.
The Council is working to find a sustainable funding source, but until this infrastructure is in place all monetary needs will continue to come from donations. To learn more, see “Why NSC?” below;
