Welcome to Osage Nation Foundation

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Though we are in the early stages of bringing our mission to life, I am thrilled to say that the Osage Nation Foundation is quickly advancing. But we need your help.  It's important to remember that this foundation was established for the charitable purpose of lessening the burdens of the Tribal Government by providing charitable services to the Tribe and its members. Participation in fundraising events or donations to the foundation are very valuable and greatly appreciated. So I hope to see all Osages band together to support this Foundation.

We have many short and long-term goals to help guide our Foundation to the future and measure our progress and effectiveness.  We want to positively impact projects deemed important to our mission while continually looking for new opportunities to expand our reach. To help lessen the burdens of the Tribal Government, we want to unobtrusively add support to existing Osage Nation programs and activities. Though we hope to become a vital ally for the Osage Nation, our goal is to also initiate our own worthy projects that will positively impact the people of the Osage Nation. Our goal is to support the Osage Nation while establishing our own local physical presence as an effective charitable foundation.

Please continue to visit our website and social media sites for updates on Osage Nation Foundations endeavors.  We promise to provide timely information for our friends and supporters.  Without you, our foundation would not be effective.  We want to have an open and honest relationship with all friends and supporters.  If you ever have any questions, concerns, or any type of feedback, please feel free to send us an email at info@osagefoundation.org
