Need a Holiday Gift Idea?

Dec 7, 2009 | Archives, Blog

It’s always hard to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything.

One donor shared that instead of purchasing another gift for her mother, a retired registered nurse, who claimed she didn’t need any more “stuff,” she decided to donate money for a nursing scholarship to the American Indian College Fund in her mother’s name.

She recounts that at first her mother protested when she was handed a package to open, stressing that she had asked for no gifts. But when she opened the box to find a certificate announcing the gift in her name, she was speechless and tears welled up in her eyes.

This holiday season, consider a gift that gives twice-give to the American Indian College Fund! For details, contact us at 800-776-3863.
