Proceeds from the auction of the Ninja ‘636’ and Kawasaki Teryx tour at Kipu Ranch will go to AICF’s mission of providing scholarships and other financial support to American Indian students, as well as funding American Indian Tribal Colleges, early childhood development and leadership development.
AICF raised more than $6 million dollars in 2013-14, and those funds provided 6,452 students with scholarships, of which 1,553 were first generation college students.
“Kawasaki is proud to support a cause that encourages higher learning,” says Chris Brull, Kawasaki Marketing Communications Director. “Everyone deserves the opportunity to explore their potential and AICF is creating educational opportunities that affect Native Americans in their own communities through scholarship and funding of tribal educational programs.”
