Chickasaw Foundation’s Donor Spotlight
The Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to feature Cindy Sperry for the donor spotlight. In 2008, Cindy established the Mitch Sperry Memorial Scholarship, in honor and memoriam of her late husband and former Chickasaw legislator, Mitch Sperry.
“I first heard about the Chickasaw Foundation when my late husband became a Chickasaw legislator,” Cindy explained. “He was continually impressed by the assistance the Foundation provided to Chickasaw citizens."
For Cindy, giving back to the Foundation through this scholarship is a way to honor Mitch. “My late husband spent the latter half of his professional career in public service. He served District 21 as the District Attorney for nearly two terms and was subsequently elected to the Chickasaw Legislature before his unexpected passing,” she said. “It was his life’s passion to serve the members of these communities because he credited them for supporting him and shaping him into the man he became. To give to the Chickasaw Foundation in his memory is a way to honor and celebrate a life well lived.”
The Chickasaw Foundation is thankful for donors like Ms. Sperry who want to see more Chickasaw students flourish. If you would like to donate to the Mitch Sperry Memorial Law Scholarship, you may do so by visiting the Chickasaw Foundation Scholarship page, and scroll all the way down to give specifically to that scholarship. You may also donate via the general donation section on our homepage or by calling (580) 421-9030.
Chickasaw Foundation ECCP Spotlight
The Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to feature Dena Gray for the Employee Charitable Contribution Plan Spotlight!
Dena, a charge nurse for the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center, has worked for the Chickasaw Nation for two years and considers it an honor to give back. “Giving to the Foundation is a way to express gratitude to the Chickasaw Nation for all it has done for me as an employee,” she said. “Being employed at the medical center has been such a blessing in so many ways.”
For Dena, she feels good knowing the impact her donations make. “It brings joy knowing that my donations go directly to the Chickasaw people I have the privilege of serving and it feels good to be a part of spreading compassion and joy to our community,” she explained. “Contributing through the Employee Charitable Contribution Plan also gives me the confidence to know that my donation goes to an area where it is needed.”
