Giving in the New Year

Wishing everyone a safe and happy New Year.

This is also the time of year where you might want to consider donating to charities. May I suggest a few of my favorite:

Native American Rights Fund - Founded in 1970, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) is the oldest and largest nonprofit law firm dedicated to asserting and defending the rights of Indian tribes, organizations and individuals nationwide.

Adopt an Elder - The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program exists to create a bridge of hope between Native Americans and other cultures. It allows us to reach out to one another, share our gifts, and mend the broken circle of our relationship with the Land and the Native Americans who hold it in sacred trust.

American Indian College Fund - Through our scholarships for American Indian college students and our support of America's tribally controlled colleges and universities, we are giving hope to, and creating better lives for, generations of Native American students and their families and communities.

Always investigate the charitiy you chose to support. You can research here at the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.

If you have any other Native-related charities you would like to list, please feel free to add to the comments.
