Why Preserve Native Cultures?

Although November is Native American Heritage Month, for the American Indian College Fund, our tribal colleges, and our students, we celebrate Native heritage every day of the year. This is because our students and communities know what it means to be without Native culture, heritage, and language–because it was once U.S. government policy to assimilate American Indians, and eradicate these priceless facets of heritage. As a result, generations of American Indians were denied their birthright.

How to Help

Currently only 15% of American Indians hold college degrees. But with 42% of Native Americans being 24 years old or younger, you have the opportunity to make an incredible impact for this generation and generations to come when you donate today.

Today is #GivingTuesday and every dollar you give NOW will go TWICE as far in reimagining what is possible for Native students!

Your gifts help Native students like Jerald, Samantha, Trey, and Chance become the counselors, lawyers, leaders, and justice heroes we need to fight for Native communities.
