Siletz Tribal Charities: And the winners are…

Siletz Tribe Surpasses $9 Million in Overall Giving
Total Includes $352,107 Distributed in early November

The Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund distributed $352,107.44 to 40 organizations on Nov. 4 as it continued its quarterly donations to non-profit organizations. The checks were presented at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, Ore.

The Siletz Tribe is proud of its contributions through employment, monetary donations and cooperative measures to the Siletz community, Lincoln County and the state of Oregon. The seven-member charitable fund advisory board has distributed more than $7.1 million since its inception in 2001.

Overall, the Tribe has honored its tradition of sharing within the community by distributing more than $9.3 million through the charitable fund and other Tribal resources. Chinook Winds has donated nearly $2.3 million in cash and fund-raising items since it opened in 1995. The casino also provides in-kind donations of convention space for various fund-raisers as well as technical support, advertising and manpower for many events.

The next deadline to submit applications is Dec. 14, 2011. Eligibility for money from the charitable fund is limited to two categories:

Entities and activities located in the Siletz Tribe’s 11-county service area (Lincoln, Tillamook, Linn, Lane, Benton, Polk, Yamhill, Marion, Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties) and Native American entities and activities located anywhere in the United States.
