Celebrate Native American Heritage Month!

Nov 10, 2017 | Blog, Inside the College Fund

Native American Heritage Month is a special time of the year for us when we celebrate our history and heritage with our friends and neighbors. We are able to celebrate the wonderful things that make being Native unique, and it also gives us time to reflect on many of those aspects that bind us together as humans.

We invite you to celebrate with your friends, family, and colleagues in honor of Native American Heritage Month. Visit our website for recipes and book recommendations—just in time for the holiday season!

Or sign our online pledge to join the movement to #ShowUp4NativeCommunities and help us be seen and heard. Let others know that we are not figures of the past but are your friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Help us celebrate the many things we have in common and embrace those things that make us unique.

You can also visit our Facebook page for updates on special features with our scholars.

We’re also celebrating with events coast-to-coast! We’ve partnered with select Panera, Red Robin, and Chipotle restaurants across the nation during November 27-29. A portion of your purchased will be donated on select dates. Make sure to visit our website for locations and details.

For all this and more, please visit  www.CollegeFund.org/ShowUp
