Why Donate

Our children learn early in life about the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most so that they may taste the happiness of giving. In American Indian culture, giving is a way of life. We invite you to join us in our grassroots effort to build relationships, public awareness, and the gifts needed to sustain and grow our unique Native-led community foundation. Your gift can support our current operations or we can help to create your own permanent resource for giving.

“My original pledge to Tiwahe Foundation was about giving back to the community through an impactful organization. Now, my wife and I also give to teach our son about the importance of giving and to show him the value of generosity in action.”
-Daniel and Leah Lemm
