How to Remember Native Americans This North Texas Giving Day
With North Texas Giving Day around the corner, we are reminded of the impact a strong community can have when everyone finds their passion, works together and gives with purpose. What are you passionate about?
At PWNA, we are passionate about helping Tribal communities become strong and self-sufficient. Unfortunately, few people are aware of the economic, educational and systemic challenges Native people face every day. But living with hardship has forced countless Native Americans to become resilient problem-solvers, and who better to address the issues than those actually facing them? That’s why we encourage your support for the Native students of North Texas!
Education is a cornerstone of economic mobility. Yet only 16% of Native Americans hold a college degree compared to 40% of their White peers. Our education services focus on retention of Native students and provide them with scholarships, welcome packs, spring care packs, laptops, mentoring and holiday care packages.
No student should miss out on college. Every student deserves access to education that helps them become catalysts for change and a brighter future. This September 21, we invite you to join us in helping Native students become the next generation of leaders. To help change a life, visit PWNA’s North Texas Giving Day page and donate.
