General Funding Needs:

Thank you for your interest in supporting The Lipan Apache Tribe. As a tribe with a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to help with our fund-raising, the Lipan Apache Tribe will use all contributions received:
  • prepetual care of our sacred burial ground/cemetery in Presidio, TX, and its protective wall;
  • to put on the Tribe's annual Nde Daa (Spring) Homecoming Pow-wow-- It takes about $6000 to put on as a one-day event, $11,000 if a two-day event. We depend entirely on personal donations for the pow-wow;
  • to sustain and expand community programs;
  • to run the Tribal office in basic energy and communication costs, office supplies, mailing supplies, and other similar office costs;
  • to secure a permanent site for our Tribal Museum and Cultural Center, and
  • to pay for website-related cost such as security.
If you want your donation to be used for a particular need or project, please enter a note in box provided by Paypal. Be assured that 100% of the funds received will be used for your designated cause.
