Chickasaw Foundation’s Donor Spotlight
The Chickasaw Foundation greatly appreciates our generous donors. We recognize Chickasaw citizen Brian Gabbard, a donor for the Chickasaw Foundation since 2015.
Gabbard knows the Chickasaw Foundation provides students with resources to achieve a higher education and opportunities for the community to learn about Chickasaw history and culture. “As donors to the foundation, we have the privilege and opportunity to be a part of this,” he said.
“There is no other foundation that gives back to its community like the Chickasaw Foundation, which promotes health and medical research, provides scholarships for higher education and adult literacy, supports local communities through nutrition and other initiatives.”
Gabbard supports the Chickasaw Foundation and wants to help carry on Chickasaw culture and the great progress the tribe has achieved. The Chickasaw Foundation scholarship program furnishes recipients with educational and cultural opportunities.
