Nonprofit that aids Native Americans seeking to buy business


FORT COLLINS — A Fort Collins-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that promotes alternative housing and energy, nutrition and education for Native American women and their families is seeking donations to help it launch a crowdfunding effort to buy a business in southern Colorado whose sales would benefit the organization’s work.

Tiyospaye Winyan Maka — its name means “extended family of women of the earth” —  wants to start a crowdfunding campaign to raise about $60,000 to purchase the business that makes beaded hats and hatbands, said Christinia Eala, TWM’s director, but first it needs donations of $8,000 to $9,000 for a videographer and video editor to do a presentation on the crowdfunding page, travel expenses, and an accountant specializing in nonprofit businesses.
