Chickasaw Foundation’s Donor Spotlight
“I think it’s important to help the next generation achieve its goals,” Brian Cooke, a Chickasaw Nation employee, said. “Chickasaw Foundation does a wonderful job of caring for its citizens; my wife and I agree its important to give back when we can.”
Cooke, director of collections for the Chickasaw Cultural Center, truly believes in helping the youth. “The world is crazy place right now,” Brian mentioned. “It seems like the youth of today face much more adversity than my generation did. We should help them during these difficult times so they can enjoy their future. It’s like the story of the person who plants a tree. They only enjoy the tree for a short time, but they’re doing it for future generations to enjoy as well. That’s how I look at the Chickasaw Foundation—planting trees.”
Chickasaw Foundation appreciates Brian for his generosity!
