KC: Nearly all donors come to us from the lists of other organizations. So, our list rental/exchange program is very important.
We also initiate involvement strategies with our donors. [For example], with our donor luncheon program, we travel to six to eight cities each year. Our annual Benefactor Banquet and American Indian Day Pow Wow celebration on campus also brings in about 300 donors and approximately 1,000 attendees. We engage in online activities [such as] blogs, Facebook pages, etc. We operate a museum on campus with art and artifact displays and a mission to honor the Native Americans in our region; over 20,000 individuals visit each year. And, finally, we are planning a Hall of History that will provide our visitors with more insight into the 80-plus years since St. Joseph's Indian School was founded. FS
