Letter from the President

Anpetu Waste Mitakuyepi,

Greetings Relatives! Thank you for your interest in learning more about making a planned gift in support of Native students. There is no greater legacy you can leave than helping lift Native people and communities through education, and by doing so we come together in our shared vision for what life for Native people could and should be.

When we are able to live our best lives while being seen by others and supported in embracing our culture and traditions, we make better choices, are better able to provide for our families and we lift those around us. This is a great vision and legacy, and one I have been working my whole life to create. I would be honored to have you join me in both the vision and the creation of this legacy.

As you consider your estate plans, please know that your gift is truly transformative - it will change the lives of countless Native students, their families, and our communities for generations to come.

Thank you
Cheryl Crazy Bull
President and CEO

About Bequests

One of the most simple, flexible, and impactful ways to make a planned gift is to include the College Fund in your will, trust or beneficiary designation form. Your bequest (a gift in your will or living trust) will ensure all Native students who want to pursue higher education to better their lives are able to do so. And just like you, each student who benefits from your legacy will touch and lift the lives of so many more. Your gift will help Native students lift their families and communities for generations to come.

Bequest Language

Adding the American Indian College Fund to your new or existing will or trust is simple. With the help of an advisor, add language in your estate plan specifying your intentions.

Sample: I give (insert dollar amount, property to be given, percentage of the estate, or "the remainder of my estate") to the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit corporation, located at 8333 Greenwood Blvd, Denver, CO 80221 for its general use and purposes. The American Indian College Fund's tax identification number is 52-1573446.

We have one unwavering purpose - increasing the number of American Indians who hold college degrees. Currently, only 15% of American Indians have a college degree - less than half the national average. There are many ways to structure your legacy giving and secure the educational future for generations of Native students. Let us help find the one that best fits you.
