Tribe announces donations to Valley organizations

The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe has recently made another round of donations in support of Snoqualmie Valley organizations.

Among donations, $12,500 went to the Mount Si High School Boosters Clubs, shared among the softball, PTSA, sheer squad, girls soccer, and football clubs. To date, the Mount Si High School Boosters Clubs have received over $74,000 in charitable donations from the Tribe.

“The Snoqualmie Tribe’s support of the Mt Si Wildcat Football Program over the last few years has been second to none,” said Jeff Mitchell, President of the Booster Club.

“Their donations have enabled us to make significant investments in player development, academic assistance, technology improvements, and increased playing opportunities for our students,” said Charlie Kinnune, head football coach. “I personally can’t thank them enough for everything they have done to support our players and coaches, Mt Si High School, and the Snoqualmie Valley at large.”

Since 2010, the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe has donated over $1.5 million to organizations in the Snoqualmie Valley including Sno Valley Tilth, Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, Encompass, and the Snoqualmie Valley School District. Overall, the Tribe has donated over $3.5 million to hundreds of Washington State non-­profit organizations.

To qualify for a donation from the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, an organization must be located within Washington State and be a 501c3 non-profit organization. Applications are available online at www.snoqualmietribe.us.
