BMM Testlabs presented a donation to NIGA’s Spirit of Sovereignty Scholarship fund, during the 2016 Indian Gaming exhibition.
The cheque was received by NIGA Chairman Ernie Stevens at the Tribal Leaders Reception on the exhibit show floor.
BMM’s EVP Operations Travis Foley, commented, “The check was provided through BMM’s Next Generation Initiative, our Tribal philanthropic program dedicated to providing access to financial and educational resources for Native American youth. BMM is committed to making a positive difference to Native American communities facing challenges, and we are very pleased to be able to assist Spirit of Sovereignty in this way.”
Spirit of Sovereignty is a national, charitable organization that directly supports the efforts of Indian individuals and tribes to achieve self-determination through educational opportunities and positive children’s programming. Spirit of Sovereignty’s programming is driven by community donors who understand that American Indian people need a base of self-determination from which to operate and that success is eminently achievable.
David Garelick, Corporate Relations Officer, Spirit of Sovereignty commented, “We really appreciate and respect BMM’s continued support to the Spirit of Sovereignty and your other charitable endeavours. May your example be an inspiration to others.”
Over the last three years, BMM’s Next Generation Initiative has provided assistance to various Tribal charities, including The Jess Green Foundation, the Sycuan Institute on Tribal Gaming and the Notah Begah NB3 Foundation. Wendy Anderson, BMM’s Chief of Staff commented, “BMM is honoured to be able to give back to Native American communities and support these worthy Tribal organizations through the Next Generation Initiative.”
