Cheyenne River Indian Outreach | St. Joseph's Indian School

A New way to give!

Helping women and children escape violence just got easier!

Cheyenne River Indian Outreach (CRIO) is pleased to announce donations can now be accepted online, safely and securely!

Thanks to a company called BlueFin, you can even set up a recurring or automatic monthly donation to help Lakota (Sioux) families on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

We’re grateful for every gift we receive, but regular monthly donations offer more than just a gift. Our monthly givers allow us to plan for the future. Knowing we can count on your support — each and every month — we are able to ensure the programs and services the community needs will be available.

YOU can make a difference by providing a safe haven for families fleeing violence. For children who would otherwise be out in the cold, alone and afraid. For women who want to break the cycle of violence.

You can even choose the day the transaction is made from your checking or credit card account! Make your gift right now!

Can I also send household items, like clothing and toys?
