September 27, 2021

September 27 marked the triumphant return of our annual NSF Golf Tournament and Auction. Together, we raised $325,000 to support the NSF Medical Mission Program and had a lot of fun in the process! The sun may not have been shining, but spirits were high as NSF supporters and NuVasive employees came together for a day of Fundraising at the beautiful Del Mar Country Club.

Players of all levels turned out for fierce, but friendly competition, course games and festivities benefiting life-changing spine surgery around the world. Post-tournament, participants enjoyed a bite to eat, silent and live auctions, and heard from Executive Director, Jamie Cali and Honduran Doctor, David Vargas about recent and future NSF medical mission trips. This event is the cornerstone of NSF’s fundraising efforts and is the primary way we fund medical mission trips that bring life-changing spine surgery, training and technology to under-resourced communities around the world.

Join NSF in our MOVE FOR MISSIONS campaign between October 1 to December 31, 2020. This peer-to-peer, online fundraising event challenges you, family members and friends to set a movement goal while raising funds to support NSF’s future medical mission trips and personal protective equipment (PPE) donations for the local healthcare providers at our medical mission sites.

EVENT UPDATE: MOVE FOR MISSIONS was a success raising nearly $10,000 to support the NSF Medical Mission Program.


As a nonprofit organization, NSF relies 100% on fundraising to fund the NSF medical mission program that provides life-changing spine surgery, training and technology to under-resourced communities around the world.

NSF is an operating foundation and does not give grants. This means that your donation (or dollars fundraised by you) will be used to operate the NSF medical mission program.

Your tax-deductible gift will give individuals suffering from debilitating spine disorders the second chance at life, they never thought possible.
