Annual Financial Report

Because of generous friends, we can reach out to Lakota (Sioux) children and their families, just like we have since 1927. Admission and all services to Native American children and families remain free-of-charge.

Here is a look at your 2023 impact:

  • Private individuals continue to provide nearly all our support — 98% to be more exact.
  • For every dollar raised, 66% goes directly to the children attending St. Joseph’s Indian School, their families living in reservation communities, and toward cultural and faith development.
  • 143 students danced at powwow.
  • 24,620 dining hall meals served
  • 16,990 books were distributed by the Bookmobile.
  • 3,713 campus health center visits.
  • $213,907 was awarded in scholarships to students pursuing higher education.
