Our Vision

The Pokagon Fund vision is that all residents who live in areas surrounding the Pokagon Tribal Lands will thrive.

Our Mission

To enhance the lives of the residents in the New Buffalo area through the financial support of local governments, nonprofits, charities, and other organizations.

Our Guiding Principles

The Board of Directors shall use its best efforts to ensure The Pokagon Fund is always viewed in a positive manner, and that it will be a positive influence in the service area to highlight the generosity of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians.

Our Service Area

Because of our Local Agreement, The Pokagon Fund is only able to support projects executed by municipalities and charitable institutions that benefit the communities surrounding The Pokagon Band Trust land consolidation sites in Michigan and Indiana: New Buffalo, New Buffalo Township, Three Oaks, Three Oaks Township, Chikaming Township, Hartford, Dowagiac and South Bend, IN. Projects that do not provide direct benefits to individuals in these communities can not be considered.
