The Naturist Education Foundation Research Library owes its success to
many people. Volunteers and donors to NEF are incredibly important to the
NEF Library, and each donor may justifiably take pride in the existence
and accomplishments of the Library.
Here, NEF acknowledges those who have contributed more than $1,000 in funds or materials for the NEF Research Library, or have made other noteworthy contributions.

NEF acknowledges in particular the outstanding donation of materials by TNS member and longtime NAC and NEF supporter Charles Perkins. With an initial contribution of over 100 large boxes of nudist magazines and books, and later contributions of more than thirty additional boxes of materials, he single-handedly established the content that would instantly make the NEF Library a world-class naturist library. More than 90 percent of the present print collection exists because of Perkins's generosity. NEF is grateful for his continuing support of this dynamic, ever-growing project.
