N2 Publishing, via its giving program N2GIVES, aids 30 nonprofits to enable the rescue of modern-day slaves

For the third consecutive year, N2 Publishing has announced a multimillion-dollar donation to nonprofit organizations fighting human trafficking and restoring hope to victims. The national media company will gift 30 nonprofit partners a combined $3 million.

While there are countless worthy causes for companies to support, N2 has committed to donating two percent of total revenue each year to what’s often referred to as the greatest injustice of our time: human trafficking.

Modern-day slavery is a reality that an estimated 40 million people are facing across the globe, in the U.S., and even in our own hometowns. N2GIVES supports organizations fighting trafficking overseas, but also nonprofits who crack down on forced labor and sex trafficking in unassuming American communities.

“To fight human trafficking, it takes people who are willing to go, but also people who are willing to send,” said Duane Hixon, CEO of N2 Publishing. “Everyone can play a part, and as a for-profit business, N2’s role is clear: We are going to financially support many of the best organizations that bring hope and justice to those often ignored.” To hear about the root of Hixon’s passion for fighting human trafficking, watch this short clip.

N2GIVES first partnered with anti-human trafficking nonprofits in 2017 through a donation of $2.2 million. In 2018, their annual giving totaled $2.5 million, not including the donation of a home now used as an emergency shelter for victims of trafficking, the first of its kind on the East Coast. Now N2GIVES will donate $3 million to support their 2019 nonprofit partners that are the best at what they do – rescuing and restoring the lives of men, women, and children held against their will. This gift brings N2GIVES’s total contributions to more than $8 million.
