Monthly Giving

By utilizing Monthly Giving, supporting Oglala Lakota College is as easy as ever! No matter the size of your monthly contribution, your gift provides much-needed financial assistance to hardworking, dedicated students that are working on getting their college degree. In the words of Chief Fools Crow, from his last graduation address in 1988: 

“My children, today are difficult times for our people. It has been for many years, since we were put on this reservation. Our grandfathers told us that life is a never ending circle and our circle was broken when we were put here. Oglala Lakota College is helping our people to come back full circle-through education. You people (the graduates) have been educated in both ways, Lakota and non-Indian (academic). Use those tools wisely and help our people become self-sufficient and proud as we once were. You are our leaders, don’t let the circle remain broken. These tools you were given are a gift and are ones that will make us strong once again.”

Your monthly commitment keeps on giving throughout the year to help more Lakota women and men achieve their goal of a better, brighter future.

Matching Gift Program

If you’re looking for a means to take your financial contributions to OLC even further, consider dollar-for-dollar Employer Matching.

Corporate matching gifts are an easy way to stretch your dollar and increase your contribution to Oglala Lakota College. You may even be able to double or triple if you work for a company that matches its employees’ charitable gifts! You’ll feel good knowing you’re supporting students in need, and so will your employer.

Should you and your employer be interested in gift matching, we encourage you to submit a matching gift form from your human resources department with your contribution.

Adding a matching gift will give you the opportunity to make a greater impact on the students we serve. An acknowledgment will be sent when your gift has been matched and received by Oglala Lakota College.
