Muckleshoot Indian Tribe gives back to the communities

The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe provided more than $4.1 million to nonprofits and other government-serving communities throughout Washington state last year, according to the tribe’s press release.

The Muckleshoot Charity Fund assisted more than 200 Washington schools, churches, and charities, allowing them to continue their programs and services to the public.

“As our tribe has become more economically independent, we have been able to expand our ability to help and support our neighbors throughout the state,” said Virginia Cross, chairperson of the Muckleshoot Tribal Council.

It is the tribe’s tradition to share with those in need. In addition to the charity fund, the tribe’s community impact funds support government agencies and other organizations on limiting the potential impact of casinos.
“We thank them for their important work and reaffirm our commitment to helping our neighbors and building communities,” Cross said. ♦

    Misplaced Altruism on part of the tribe. They need to give money to other Indian tribes rather than helping some random “200 Washington schools, churches, and charities.” Indian country needs their help, not rich organizations of an illegal government.
