The Native American Rights Fund greatly appreciates the support of those who share our commitment to the rights of individual Indians and tribes. In addition to making a donation to NARF, there are many other ways to support our work. Please contact our Development Department at (303) 447-8760 to learn more about these ways to give. Some options include:
Circle of Life (Planned Giving)
Circle of Life members provide a lasting legacy to the Native American Rights Fund by including NARF in estate planning or deferred gifts. The circle is an important symbol to Native Americans representing unity, strength and the eternal continuity of life. These lasting gifts help ensure the future of NARF and our Indian clients nationwide. Making a bequest not only is a sign of benevolence, but also is the mark of your desire to help shape the future. Along with significant tax benefits, you'll gain a kind of immortality that can't be achieved any other way. Discover your planned giving options.
Otu’han Gifts (Tribute and Memorial Giving)
Otu’han is the Lakota (Sioux) word translated as “giveaway.” Otu’han is a memorial and honoring gift program modeled after the tradition of the Indian giveaway in which items of value are gathered over a long period of time to be given away in honor of birthdays, marriages, anniversaries, and in memory of a departed loved one. Give now!
NARF has two established endowments, the 21st Century Endowment and the Living Waters Endowment. The 21st Century Endowment is a permanent fund in which the principal is invested and interest income is used for NARF’s programs. The Living Waters Endowment directly funds the 21st Century Endowment. It allows donors to honor friends and loved ones by making an endowment gift of $10,000 or more. By designating a gift to either endowment, you can be sure that your contribution will continue to generate annual funds in perpetuity. Endowment supporters are recognized on a special wall plaque displayed at the headquarters of the Native American Rights Fund. Supporters also receive a memorial piece for their home and are acknowledged in NARF’s annual report. Please contact Don Ragona at (303) 447-8760.
In the current climate of ever-changing tax laws and fluctuating investment market conditions, stock, bond or mutual fund gifts are an easy way to make a lasting contribution to the Native American Rights Fund. They may also provide contributors with significant tax benefits. For more information on gifts of stock or other securities, please contact Don Ragona at (303) 447-8760 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
