National Project Pledges to Match Contributions
Made by Year End to College of Menominee Nation

 

College of Menominee Nation

Friends of the College of Menominee Nation (CMN) are being invited to make CMN part of their year-end charitable giving and to see the impact of their donation increase through a new online matching-gift challenge project. The invitation comes from NativeGiving.org, a project of First Nations Development Institute located in Longmont, Colorado.

 

From now through midnight, Dec. 31, the College is part of a matching gift campaign in conjunction with NativeGiving.org. The fund drive is designed to help support CMN’s mission of providing accredited higher learning to American Indian students and their neighbors from throughout the region.

 

Those who make a donation to CMN through the NativeGiving.org fundraising platform, will have their gift matched by another generous donor – dollar for dollar – to a total of $500 in gifts. Gifts made in this campaign have added impact because of the match and may be claimed as tax-deductible as allowed by law.

 

Beyond that, each gift will have even more power by making CMN eligible for additional incentives to help further its mission. Since the College is one of several Native organizations participating in NativeGiving.org, a generous donor has pledged to award a prize of $1,000 to the participating organization that raises the most funds through the website by the end of the year. Another $1,000 prize will be given to the organization that raises the largest number of individual gifts through NativeGiving.org, regardless of the total dollar amount.

 

About the College of Menominee Nation

The College is an accredited baccalaureate institution awarding academic degrees and technical diplomas to students from dozens of American Indian tribes and many Wisconsin communities. CMN’s main campus is in Keshena, Wisconsin, on the Menominee Indian Reservation. An urban campus which serves about one-third of CMN’s student population is located in Green Bay near tribal lands of the Oneida Nation. Grants and generous donations provide important leverage for providing scholarships and high quality educational resources for those who attend CMN.
