#GivingTuesday is over, but the need remains
We’ve shared with you our participation in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to promote philanthropy and generosity around the world. And from Nov. 24 to Dec. 1, we joined the Newman’s Own Foundation Challenge, where we were eligible for up to $10,000 in matching funds.
While we didn’t reach our goal of $10,000, we appreciate all that you gave and our partners will still benefit greatly from the nearly $5,000 Newman’s Own Foundation is providing in matching funds. But we still need your help. The reality is that the needs of the reservations we serve are continuous, no matter the time of year. As you begin your holiday shopping and consider what charitable contributions you want to make during this season of giving, consider Partnership With Native Americans as your top choice.
No matter your charitable goals and desires, there is an immediate or long-term need that can be addressed through PWNA:
- Holidays: PWNA provides gift bags or stockings for more than 50,000 children, teens and Elders during the holiday season
- Hunger: Provide gifts-in-kind like water and food items
- Education: Donate school supplies for K-12 students or a monetary donation for post-secondary scholarships
- Animal welfare: Donate dog food, bowls, etc. to help large populations of animals on reservations
- Partner training: Help equip reservation partners with the skills and capacity building needed to make an even greater contribution and impact in their communities
- Emergency relief: With the harsh winter approaching, many of those we serve on reservations need help with winterizing their homes, getting enough winter fuel for home heating and other emergency services.
Whether your passion is animals, children or education, there is a place for your generosity within PWNA’s work. Donate today and help us move closer to that #GivingTuesday goal of $10,000. Our Crowdrise page is still up and accepting donations, or you can donate today on the PWNA website.
