Like many others, I had never heard of tribal colleges and universities until I reviewed the literature sent to me by mail. Fascinated, I went to visit on of the colleges - the College of the Menominee Nation in Wisconsin was the first of many I ended up visiting. Each college is different, and each special. They are little miracles in indian country that too few people are aware of. The College Fund raises money to support these colleges by providing scholarships to Native American students and in other ways. I give my donations to education generally, and these colleges need the help so much more than mainstream schools. As a Board member, I can attest to the fact that we run a very tight organization, so most of our donations go striaght to where they are needed - to the colleges on the reservations.
