Watch for Our New PSA Campaign

We've been busy at the Fund, readying for the Flame of Hope Gala a week from today in New York City, taking in corporate and individual donations that are coming in the door, and preparing for the launch of our new Public Service Announcement campaign designed by our advertising supporter, Wieden+Kennedy.

As you may know, Wieden+Kennedy designed our previous ads, and is known for its outstanding work over the years with Nike. Wieden+Kennedy was also awarded the best ad agency in the world award last year. We think you are going to be wowed by the work they have done to capture how tribal colleges are cultivating and harnessing traditional knowledge to solve modern societal problems.

We'll be unveiling the work at the Glame of Hope Gala next week and the excitement around here is palpable. Watch our web site for the new PSA, as well as your favorite magazines. We will also be unveiling lots of grassroots ideas about how you can help us spread the word about this new campaign.

There's Still Time to Join Us in New York!

American Indian families have the lowest incomes in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. American Indian students often must choose between attending college or putting food on the table. In tight economic times, students rely even more heavily on scholarship support.

The American Indian College Fund raises monies for much-needed scholarships in Indian Country through its gala, providing support for deserving students attending the nation’s 32 tribal colleges and universities.

We hope you will join us October 29 at Gotham Hall at 6 p.m. Special entertainment will be provided by the Red Hawk Dance Troupe and headliner Jakob Dylan.

Contact Lucia Novara for information at or 303-430-5323. If you are unable to attend, your donation is always welcome.
