I joined the Board in the summer of 2011. I've visited several of the Tribal Colleges and am very familiar with not only the purpose of the Fund but also it's health as a nonprofit organization. Having spent my professional career working with some of the world's best companies, I've got good benchmarks in the public and private sector to compare AICF. I'm extremely impressed with the work that the Fund has been doing in Indian country. The opportunities provided to Native Americans through the Fund and our Tribal Colleges are better than ever, and the future looks much brighter than the past. A dollar spent through AICF is a dollar spent on the education of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged citizens in our country. It's also a dollar spent on promoting the diversity of thought and culture as well as the development of our nation's indigenous resources. I'm very proud of what the Fund offers and where it's leading Indian Country!
