With over 38% of the population of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) under the age of 18, the needs of children and youth are clearly a priority for the Community. Many Community families have limited means to provide for their children's opportunity of successes.
Believing that all children and youth of Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community deserve to have the support of their Community, on February 19, 2003, the Tribal Council created The Salt River Community Children's Foundation to meet their needs. The non-profit, charitable division of the SRPMIC makes contributions to tax-exempt organizations that provide assistance or preventative programs and services for SRPMIC children and youth. The Foundation supports organizations that qualify under Section 7871 (a) (1) (A, B, & C) or under Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Children's Foundation receives private and public contributions and depends upon the donations received from events, including an annual golf tournament at Talking Stick Golf Club, tribal employee payroll deductions, and the generous support of private individuals, businesses and corporations.
On Behalf of the Children's Foundation Board, we thank you for your generous contributions to help the needs of the children and youth of Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
Note: Once a contribution request form is approved, please allow 10 business days for a payment distribution. A W-9 Form must be filled out by vendor if this is the first time requesting sponsorship from vendor.
