Wacantognakapi (Generosity)

Oglala Lakota College is on a mission to rebuild the Lakota Nation by equipping our tribal communities’ future leaders with the tools, education, and preparation they need to leave a lasting impact on the lives of others once they graduate. From preparing our future educators to go out and teach our youth to establishing thought leaders who will shape tribal policies for decades to come, OLC has the ability to rejuvenate our communities for the better, while instilling the principles of Wolakolkiciyapi. However, we need your help to make this happen.

The Difference Your Support Makes

Welcoming nearly 1,400 students every year, Oglala Lakota College plays a pivotal role in the personal and professional development of tribal youth. However, with over 64% of students coming from low-income households, over 55% of students do not have the financial means necessary to complete their education. This disparity is detrimental to the future of our tribal communities, one which Oglala Lakota College believes is essential to narrow in its entirety through alternative means of financial support beyond financial aid and federal grants. To this effect, OLC aims to build a $170,000,000 Student Scholarship Endowment by 2071, our 100th Anniversary, to ensure any student who wants to attend OLC can have their financial needs met without worry.

While OLC works diligently to procure financial funding and grants, we need your help to bring our vision to fruition. Whether you support OLC with a one-time donation, recurring monthly donation, or join Tatanka Okolakiciye (Buffalo Society), your financial support for our efforts ensures a brighter future for our students, college, and the Lakota Nation as whole.

Ways to Give

As a means to make education affordable for our future tribal trailblazers, OLC offers a variety of ways for you to support our students and college.
