Pine Ridge Support

Your support of the Global Partners-Pine Ridge program assists in the healthcare, educational and community development activities in Pine Ridge.

Financial donations can be directed to any of these initiatives:

Pine Ridge Medical Partnerships: Financial donations to "Medical Partnerships" will support the healthcare activities from Global Partners-Pine Ridge teams, such as purchasing the gas for the mobile mammography unit (gas for the unit costs more than $1000 round-trip to Pine Ridge), medical supplies, health education materials, snacks for patients, and more.

Pine Ridge Educational Scholarships: Support scholarships for Pine Ridge Reservation high school students to attend the Native Students Health Careers Camp and scholarships for nursing students attending the nursing program at Oglala Lakota College. Global Partners hopes to provide at least one $500 scholarship to the OLC nursing program each semester.

Pine Ridge Community Development: Support relationship building and economic development through the Lakota Farmer/Rancher program and community garden work. Financial donations will also help provide community dinners, purchase supplies for quilting groups and more.

Pine Ridge Youth (Edith Nutter Fund): Edith Nutter, a friend of the Gundersen Medical Foundation, began a fund in 2011 specifically to support the youth on Pine Ridge. This fund supported the Healing Camp for Kids through the purchase of supplies (e.g. sleeping bags, sleeping mats, tarps, and other materials) needed for the week-long camp. Financial donations to the "Pine Ridge Youth Fund" will continue to support youth enrichment activities like the Healing Camp, including new partnerships with Pine Ridge youth centers and schools.
