San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Surprises Native Nonprofits with $1M in Donations on #GivingTuesday
December 1, 2022
In honor of GivingTuesday, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians yesterday surprised 10 Native-led nonprofit organizations with donations of $100,000 each.
The Tribe made donations totaling $1 million to the following organizations: Strong Hearted Native Women's Coalition, California Indian Museum and Cultural Center, National Indian Child Welfare Association, Great Plains Veterans Services, Notah Begay III Foundation, Inter-Tribal Sports Inc., Native Hope, National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, HIR Wellness and Mother Nation.
The Tribe chose nonprofits based on their dedication to fighting injustices plaguing Native nations-such as the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Peoples crisis and the support for the Indian Child Welfare Act-and those supporting Native Americans and advocating on important Native American issues.
