Education is a precious commodity. 

One that I cannot risk being without. My family and my future depend on my education.

That's why the American Indian College Fund has one unwavering purpose – increasing the number of American Indians who hold college degrees.

In the past ten years, the percentage of Native Americans with college degrees has increased from less than 11% to 15.5%-- that’s over 300,000 people! Every single degree earned has changed the life of a person, the lives of their family and the lives of people in their community.

Every single degree matters.

Every single student matters.

Every single tribal nation matters.

When you give, I go to work. I will not be stopped.


$283.7m invested into Native Communities, 153,890 scholarships awarded since 1989, 93% College Fund Scholars use their education to give back to their communities. How your donations are used - 5% management and general, 21% fundraising, 74% scholarships, programs, and public education.
