Chickasaw Foundation’s Donor Spotlight
Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to feature Marty Wafford for the donor spotlight. Wafford serves as the under secretary of support and programs for the Chickasaw Nation Department of Health.
Wafford knows her contribution makes a difference—no matter the amount. “Giving to the Chickasaw Foundation makes me feel like I have a very small impact on scholarships or hardships for our people,” she said. “Being able to give back is important to help our communities.”
She knows the importance of giving. “This is a priority to me,” Wafford mentioned. “I love the way the Foundation makes it a priority to help the communities around it.”
All in all, Marty knows what difference any donation makes. “I encourage others to give because even a small amount can help so many in need!”
Chickasaw Foundation is very thankful for Ms. Wafford’s support!
Chickasaw Foundation ECCP Spotlight
Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to feature Pamela Beard for the Employee Charitable Contribution Plan Champion. Beard, who is the speech language pathologist for the department of education, has been with the Chickasaw Nation for six years.
“I am working to provide services to our tribal preschool in Ada and to collaborate with our three Head Start programs in Ardmore, Tishomingo and Sulphur as well as our child development centers,” she said. “I choose to give to the Chickasaw Foundation because it should be a privilege to bless others with a portion of what has been given to us.”
Beard knows how far her donations can go. “If I can do one thing to impact both native Oklahomans and native Chickasaw citizens as well as their families in times of need then I will gladly choose this one thing,” Beard commented. “As an individual it may not be much, but collectively if we could all give, we can all make a difference and what a witness that can be!”
Chickasaw Foundation is thankful to have donors like Ms. Beard!
