At Nova Insider, we prioritize serving Villanova and our surrounding community before all else. We strive to use our love of basketball to bring awareness to and raise funds for causes we believe in. Here are some of our past partners that we are proud to have worked with and hope to do so again:

 

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer

ALSF is dedicated to changing children's lives through impactful research, raising awareness and supporting families to help cure pediatric cancer. Every year, we partner with ALSF to run a March Madness bracket to raise money for struggling families.

 

Feed the Frontlines

Frankki Romano GoFundMe

In April 2020, we partnered with Frankki Romano '15 to raise $40,000 via GoFundMe and to help coordinate and feed 6000+ doctors and nurses fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines.

 

COVID Prevention Pantry

Worked with Jasmine Mays '22 to help raise money for dozens of COVID Relief Kits in addition to a sustainable pantry on campus where students could acquire household products associated with preventing the spread of COVID-19.

 

United War Veterans Council

Worked with Diego Rubio '11 to donate hundreds of masks and other PPE to homeless veterans. We also produced hundreds more, along with other PPE and merchandise, to successfully and safely execute the 2020 Veteran's Day Parade in NYC despite the challenges presented by the pandemic.

 

 Villanova LEVEL
LEVEL is a student group formed to bridge the gap between students with various abilities and disabilities. Targeting academics, social interaction, mindsets, and physical barriers, LEVEL is working to expand the idea of community on and off campus. We have worked together to raise money for the annual LEVEL retreat and look forward to helping to do so again in the future!

 

Villanova SREHUP

We have run multiple campaigns to raise money for and donated winter clothing to the Student-Run Emergency Housing Unit of Philadelphia, a student-run homeless shelter in Philly that provides a place to sleep, warm meals, a variety of holistic programs, and assistance in attaining permanent housing.

 

Tree of Life Congregation
After the harrowing shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA in 2018, we ran a fundraising campaign to raise money for the families of the victims affected by this terrible tragedy.
