Hopi Foundation unites with communities in 10-day Cultures of Giving Donor Challenge
Fundraising efforts begin Tuesday, end April 26

KYKOTSMOVI, Ariz. - The Hopi Foundation will be part of an exciting 10-day online fundraising campaign, sponsored by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation beginning on Tuesday and concluding on April 26. The online fundraising campaign's intent is to support nonprofits addressing high-priority issues in communities of color across the country by leveraging the impact of collective philanthropy to support diverse cultures and traditions of giving.

In the Hopi context philanthropy is embodied in the principles of Sumi'nangwa, meaning to come together to do activities for the benefit of all, and Nami'nangwa, to help each other in times of need, without having to be asked and to do so without expecting compensation. In addition the concept of Hita'nangwa is exemplified by taking initiative in support of the community without having to be acknowledged for their efforts.

Traditionally for the Hopi, everything was always done together; as farmers, the Hopi planted, cultivated, harvested and preserved their food together. Their environment is so harsh that they really had no choice for survival than to create a highly cooperative society and The Hopi Foundation's role has been and is to support those traditions.

The Hopi Foundation will be one of over 20 well-respected nonprofits, raising funds during these 10 days, every donor's dollar will be worth more as the Kellogg Foundation will match funds and offer awards to triple the amounts raised on certain days throughout the challenge. The Hopi Foundation's goal is to raise 100K through this effort as it is another way of leveraging our partnerships and making a difference in the communities we serve.

To help the foundation further their impact in the community, donors can show support in the following ways -

• Consider matching the funds raised on April 20-22 or the 25, and the foundation is eligible to earn awards that triple their dollars on those specific days.

• Make a donation April 17-26 at
