Onward Haskell: Haskell Foundation preserving an academic legacy

Haskell Foundation, Haskell Indian Nations University

As you may have read on our blog before, Travois donates billboard space on our property to local nonprofits, and the Haskell Foundation became the most recent nonprofit to team up with us.

The Haskell Foundation recently installed two engaging signs to promote its mission: working in conjunction with Haskell Indian Nations University, to provide financial and academic opportunities to students and faculty of the tribal college, located in Lawrence, KS.

“Supporting the Haskell Foundation is supporting Haskell Indian Nations University,” said Marisa Mendoza, executive director of the Haskell Foundation. “Money raised by the Haskell Foundation will assist with unmet needs of the university that are beyond appropriated funds provided by the Bureau of Indian Education.”

We were especially excited that the Haskell Foundation could use the advertising space because Haskell is the tribal college that is located nearest to us! Lawrence, KS, is a short 45-minute drive from Kansas City.

Contributions to the Haskell Foundation support projects and programs that promote academic excellence, student services, campus infrastructure, the preservations of historic buildings, the modernization of technology and equipment, and general enrichment of the campus.

Here are a few more facts about the Haskell Indian Nations University:

Three Travois staff members, Eden Rensing, Phil Glynn and Adam Rose, had an opportunity to visit recently and take a tour of Haskell’s campus earlier in the summer. See photos here.

We are so happy to be able to help promote the Haskell Foundation’s mission to support Haskell Indian Nations University! Can you help? Contribute here.

    • Hi, Steven – Yes, the billboards are located on the southeast corner of the intersection of West 19th Street and Broadway Street in Kansas City, MO 64108 (though 19th Street turns into West 18th Street once you are west of Broadway). Here’s a link from Google maps.

      I hope this helps! Thanks for reading!
