Chickasaw Foundation ECCP Spotlight
Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to feature Krystal Ross for the Employee Charitable Contribution Plan Champion. Ross, who serves as executive officer of the department of education, came on board the Chickasaw Nation seven months ago.
“I first learned about the Chickasaw Foundation when my oldest daughter began applying for college scholarships,” Krystal said. “I was very impressed with the variety of scholarships they have for Chickasaw students.”
Ross was excited to see all the work the Foundation does. “As I explored the Chickasaw Foundation website more, I loved what I found,” she shared. “They not only fund scholarships for education but fill in the gap financially during critical times for Chickasaw citizens and support many organizations that I value.”
She continued: “As a Chickasaw citizen, I know that we have been blessed to have the many services and opportunities provided by the Chickasaw Nation. We are extremely fortunate to have the Chickasaw Foundation work alongside the programs and services of the Nation.”
Above all, Krystal knew she wanted to support the Foundation in some fashion. “It was a goal of mine to eventually support the Chickasaw Foundation, but I had not researched the process yet,” she said. “When I was given the opportunity to become a donor when I joined the Chickasaw Nation Department of Education, I did not hesitate! The more I learn about the Chickasaw Foundation, the prouder I am to be Chickasaw but also a donor and supporter of the Chickasaw Foundation.”
The Chickasaw Foundation is grateful for Ms. Ross’ support!
