NAICCO Fundraising Campaigns #1 & #2

Campaign #1: “Land Back NAICCO”


At the end of October 2022, the Land Back NAICCO campaign has brought in a total of $159,883! To everyone who has jumped onboard with the Bigger & Better NAICCO vision, we’d like to personally say, “Thank you, for your love, care, and concern.” We know without you we’d never have moved the needle this far. Please continue to stand with us throughout 2022 as we endeavor to reach our goal of $250,000.

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 before the end of 2022! 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 in 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…

Thank you for your continued support of this vision!
