Our mission is
To amplify the work of NAYA’s Development Department by building capacity through volunteerism, donor cultivation, and leadership.
Who we are
NAYA’s Community Leaders Council (CLC) is an action-oriented group of leaders and allies dedicated to furthering the mission and living the values of NAYA. We are steeped in the belief that it takes a community to build a strong future. As a team, we provide strategic, wrap-around support to enhance the organization’s profile, create additional capacity, maximize fundraising efforts, and foster development of emerging community leaders.
Core areas of focus
- Build capacity through volunteerism – NAYA Gala, MNA Luncheon, Native Professional and Friends Nights, and other fundraising events throughout the year
- Raise funds – important unrestricted revenue raised through direct donations, auction items, and leveraging networks
- Promote the organization – Spread the word about NAYA through our in-person/social networks and community involvement
- Lead – Develop CLC created events, members nominated to leadership positions within the community
