 NAICCO Fundraising Campaigns #1 & #2

Campaign #1: “Land Back NAICCO”


After closing the books for 2022, we are thrilled to announce that Land Back NAICCO is now up to $191,142 and growing! Needless to say, 2022 was an amazing year for our campaign! To put this into perspective, Land Back NAICCO was sitting at an even $100,000 at the start of 2022. Together, over the past year, we were able to nearly double that amount! Again, what a milestone achievement! From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to extend a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who helped move the needle this much. Thanks goes out to all those who donated, all those who offered endowments, all those who provided grants, all those who started fundraisers, all those who furnished honorariums, all those who gave coverage via media outlets, and all those who helped spread the word and champion Land Back NAICCO throughout the year. Additionally, we’d like to thank all those unsung heroes who donated and chose to remain anonymous. To all of you, Kwala (thank you) for your love and support!

Going forward, the Bigger & Better NAICCO vision will continue to be advanced through two distinct phases:

  • Phase #1 (Land Back NAICCO) will focus on purchasing land (20 acres or more)

  • Phase #2 will focus on the development of that land

To fulfill Phase #1, NAICCO is seeking to raise $250,000 in 2023. NAICCO leadership has determined this as the amount necessary for purchasing at least 20 acres of land and ensuring that land will be of the highest quality possible – land worth building the future of our Native People upon. Once Phase #1 is complete, we will begin fundraising for Phase #2.

Land Back NAICCO has certainly come a long way, yet we still have a ways to go before reaching our mark of $250,000. To continue helping us write this new, successful, healing chapter in modern-day Native American history, please continue to stand with us throughout 2023.


Our Native community here at NAICCO has told us on countless occasions that we need a space in Ohio that we can call ours… where we can gather and be ourselves; thus, to honor our past, thrive in the present, and walk proudly into the future. Needless to say, land will always be an essential piece to sustaining our legacy as Native People…
