INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE FORM
Those seeking donations for community projects or our assistance with fundraising programs must complete this application in its entirety. Any request that is submitted without completing this application in its entirety will not be considered.
1. To evaluate each donation request fairly and comprehensively, donation applications need to be submitted at least six weeks before the donation is required to ensure adequate time for the review process and determination. There is no rush processing, so plan ahead of time if your organization has a deadline to meet.
2. Confirm the organization’s name, mailing address, point of contact, contact phone number, and email address are filled out completely. Some questions may not apply to your organization or project, but please answer all questions that do apply.
3. Specify what donation amount and/or goods are being requested. Any application that does not have this information completed will not be considered.
Review of application
The Tribal Council will review the application and base the decision solely on the information provided. Applicants may provide additional information or attachments relevant to the funding request; however, a concise statement of the project methods and goals will help evaluate the application. Only send copies of additional materials as those documents received with the donation application will not be returned.
A valid email address is required on this application. You will be contacted via email to notify you that your donation request was approved. Due to the volume of donation requests received, only those donation requests approved will receive an email. If you do not receive an email from us during the six-week timeline, your donation request has not been approved, and this office will take no further action.
Donation applications are approved and dispersed at the discretion of the Tribal Council. The Tribe receives numerous requests for funding each month. The Tribe tries to provide financial assistance to various organizations that enrich our local communities; however, they cannot fund every request. New donation requests are not guaranteed even if you have received a donation from the Tribe in the past. Any inquires as to why a request was not approved will not receive a response.
