Review for American Indian College Fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My involvement with the AICF was first as a client served but now donate to the organization. I am a graduate of a Tribal College. I attended college on the hope for a better life and the education I would need to help my family. My parents scraped together enough money to pay for my first semester in school. I had no idea of how I would pay for subsequent semesters but just kept the hope that I would find a way. Towards the end of my first semester I applied for and received a scholarship through the AICF. The money I received payed my tuition that next semester. Every semester I would apply for and receive a scholarship through the AICF. Because of the help I received from the AICF I was able to graduate. I would never have been able to go to college without the AICF and will be eternally grateful for the support they gave me. The opportunities I have received as a result of the AICF support and my education have changed not only my life but have also changed the lives of my family. Today I work for a company that matches payroll deduction contributions to the AICF. I use this program to help increase the financial support I now give to the AICF. I hope someday to be able to repay the gift the AICF gave to my family and I.
