Donate to Tlingit & Haida's Education Fundraiser

As part of Tlingit & Haida's President's Awards Ceremony, which will celebrate 11 people who continue to contribute greatly to our people and communities, we will be holding an Education Fundraiser to support the Tribe's education initiatives.

 

We are seeking support from community partners, local businesses and individuals who are interested in donating items for silent and live auctions. Your generous gift will support Tlingit & Haida's vision to build strong educational programs that are place-based and culturally-relevant, will inspire our youth and create healthy, thriving communities. All donors will receive recognition in the program, during the fundraiser and on social media. Your donation is also tax deductible!

 

Investing in our children's education is an investment in our communities. When education integrates place-based and culturally-relevant knowledge, it fosters identity, community connection, cultural preservation, and ultimately leads to more holistic and impactful learning outcomes and contributes to the wellness of our communities. 

 

If you are interested in helping us achieve our vision and education initiatives, please consider making a donation. To donate an auction item, please complete a donation form and submit to hwillard@tlingitandhaida.gov.
