About the Fundraising Drive

Mita Maske Ti Ki has experienced severe budget shortfalls due to changes in grants we rely upon. As of September 1, 2008 we will not have any funding.

Thanks to our friends at the South Dakota Coalition Against Domestic Violence and neighboring shelters, we have been able to submit for several new grants. However, it appears likely that these sources of funding are at least a couple of months away from arriving.

In order to keep Mita Maske Ti Ki open, we need approximately $9,000 per month for our operating budget. This is a bare bones budget but will allow us to stay open to provide aid to women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Our goal is to raise $35,000 รข?? enough for roughly three and a half months of operations. That will give us the breathing room needed to get some grant funding in place and secure our future.

We ask that you donate to our operating fund and aid us through this difficult time. Your support is gratefully appreciated.

**Important Tax Note**

Mita Maske Ti Ki has submitted our application for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. We have not yet received approval on our application.
