Show Your Love for NAYA(send your own video)

As the largest urban Native American focused organization in the Northwest, the NAYA Family Center works to impact 9,000 individuals annually in the Portland Metro area. Through a diverse array of partnerships and culturally-inspired direct services, NAYA builds a foundation to community success through family support, education, workforce-preparedness and economic development.

Right now, in our own backyard, 40% of kids (45% in our native community) are trapped in a cycle of poverty. Sometimes these kids don’t have enough to eat. They can’t see a doctor. They struggle in school. When our children are set up for success, everyone benefits. Our region is stronger. Our home is stronger. We are stronger.

More than 24 (>24) is a 24-hour campaign that will mobilize our community to join the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, in an effort to break the cycle of childhood poverty. For 24 hours on Wednesday, June 11th you can go to www.morethan24.org to donate any amount by credit/debit card or commit some volunteer time. You can pledge you support now and get a friendly reminder on June 11th to fulfil your commitment.

This is about more than just one day of giving. It marks the start of a new journey to give every kid a fair chance. When you give to >24 on June 11th, your investment means more—more than one contribution, more than one kid, more than you can do alone.

You can find out more information about >24 here: www.morethan24.org or contact us at loveNAYA@nayapdx.org.

On Wednesday, June 11 from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM you can go to www.morethan24.org to donate any amount by credit/debit card or commit some volunteer time. Donors who give more than $24 will: have their donation matched 100%; be entered into a drawing to receive some great prizes; and receive ONE VOTE for the nonprofit of their choice to receive additional funding.

This is an opportunity for the NAYA Family Center to receive an extra $10,000 for the most votes, $5,000 for the second, or $2,500 for the third. These funds will support the many services we provide to the community.

Here is how you can help:

  • On June 11th, go to www.morethan24.org
  • Donate more than $24 to the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette
  • After you complete your donation, it will automatically direct you to where you can vote
  • Vote for “NAYA Family Center”
  • Celebrate the fact you made difference to break the cycle of childhood poverty
  • Share with your friends and family and encourage them to support NAYA and the United Way

The United Way of the Columbia-Willamette and the Native American Youth and Family Center have a long-standing relationship and a common vision of strengthening our community.

In the past the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette has provided funding for our literacy programs at the Early College Academy and Youth Advocacy Programs. This year, both organizations have committed to a joint effort in breaking the cycle of childhood poverty within the Portland area.

With the >24 campaign we will raise awareness of childhood poverty within our community. We hope you join us in this wonderful show of community collaboration by contributing on June 11.

Any contribution to this campaign is not just for the United Way, it’s for the community, which NAYA proudly belongs to.
