Tribal College Journal;Summer2004, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p40
Tom Brokaw has donated $25,000 to the Nursing Faculty Endowment Fund at Oglala Lakota College (OLC). OLC's goal is to raise $225,000 from South Dakota donors for the Nursing Faculty Endowment Fund and then challenge its donors nationwide to match 2 to 1 the amount raised in South Dakota. With the Tom Brokaw donation, OLC has raised $203,000 from South Dakota donors for the Nursing Faculty Endowment Fund. The OLC Nursing Faculty Endowment Fund is very important due to the critical shortage of nurses in the nation, South Dakota, and especially on American Indian reservations.
