The National Indian Child Welfare Association Partners with Two Key Stakeholders to Double Donations on #GivingTuesday

(Portland, OR, November 26, 2018)—The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) announces their partnerships with Spirit Rock Consulting for a 1-to-1 match up to $2,500 for #GivingTuesday and Willamette Week through the 2018 Give!Guide campaign.

With a goal of $2,500, donations will help NICWA keep Native children connected to their family and culture. Knowing who they are and being connected to their families and tribal communities is in the best interest of Native children. Children who develop a cultural identity and ethnic pride as a result of being connected to their communities perform better in school, have lower alcohol use, and experience higher social functioning.

Give!Guide promotes 150 Portland-based charities through November and December, and partners with local businesses to offer grand prizes to donors throughout the campaign, including a Brasada Ranch vacation giveaway for #GivingTuesday donors.

Sarah Kastelic, executive director of NICWA issued the following statement:

“NICWA is proud to partner with Spirit Rock Consulting and to be featured in the Willamette Week’s 2018 Give!Guide campaign. With Spirit Rock Consulting’s generous $2,500 match, and Give!Guide’s support in outreach and incentives, NICWA believes will reach our $2,500 #GivingTuesday goal while reaching new audiences and gaining even more allies to unite for Native families.”
