Giving Back

A tradition of teamwork

The relationship between Native Americans and those who came to our shores from abroad has frequently been contentious, especially in the early years of the U.S. But despite the decades of discrimination and injustice—even violence—against them, the Poarch Creeks have always fostered a steadfast desire for unity and reconciliation.

This desire has now been realized. With the growth and development of the Poarch Creek Indians, the relationship between Alabama and its only federally recognized Tribe has deepened into a mutually beneficial partnership. And as the Tribe’s economic impact on the state has increased, its influence has grown—from the halls of the legislature to charitable foundations to leading organizations throughout the state.

The Tribe has also become a benevolent leader in the world of philanthropy. Given its long-standing tradition of sharing with those in need, the Tribe contributes to many charitable organizations in the community, helping to fund the arts as well as activities such as youth sports, senior care and emergency support services. Its generosity also benefits the broader Alabama community through job creation. As of 2018, Tribal businesses alone accounted for nearly 6,000 direct jobs, over 90 percent of which are held by non-Indians.

Every year, the Poarch Creek Indians provide charitable contributions to Native American organizations, counties and other entities.
