Tribal Partners

Generosity and reciprocity are long-held values in American Indian culture and tradition. The status of a Native family was raised not by who had the most resources, but by who distributed the most.

This Native tradition of giving continues today. American Indians and tribal nations are committed to the well-being of their communities through modern philanthropic efforts. Tribes generously donate to ensure that American Indian students have the opportunity to earn a college degree for a more promising future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
