Oneida Nation Foundation donations help all aspects of CNY, Indian country
Over the past several months, the Oneida Nation Foundation has contributed $15,393 to needy organizations and institutions in both Indian country and in Upstate New York.
“These donations are part of the ongoing efforts of the Oneida Indian Nation to help our brothers and sisters in Indian country, as well as our neighbors here locally,” stated Chuck Fougnier, chairman of the Oneida Nation Foundation. “More than 35 groups in Central New York received help from the generosity of the Nation—from organizations benefitting children and the disadvantaged to those focusing on health-related issues and the environment.”
These donations were in addition to the $220,525 that 84 local and regional charities received earlier this year from the Nation’s Upstate New York Empowerment Fund for selling tickets to the Turning Stone Resort Championship, a PGA TOUR event.
