United Auburn Indian Community allocates $500,000 to community fund

The United Auburn Indian Community (UAIC) announced today that it has allocated $500,000 to its community fund for 2011 to be donated to nonprofit organizations in Placer County.

The UAIC Community Giving Committee will focus its yearly grants on educational programs and social service organizations whose work significantly impacts struggling and underserved persons and families. Applications from organizations based outside of Placer County will be accepted provided the services of the organization significantly affect the residents of Placer County.

“The Tribe has come a long way over the past few years and we are proud to have the ability to invest in the community that has supported us,” said David Keyser, Chairman of the UAIC.
