Patawomeck Heritage Foundation
The Patawomeck Heritage Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization whose sole purpose is to promote and protect the culture and heritage of the Patawomeck Indians.
The Patawomeck Heritage Foundation’s articles of incorporation state:
The primary purpose of this organization is educational, within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3)of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or such other provisions of state or federal laws of which may from time to time be applicable. The specific purpose is to preserve and perpetuate the culture and customs of the Patawomeck Band, to educate others of the importance of this Band: Preserving the Past and Educating Future Generations.
Article II of the Articles of Incorporation states:
The Corporation is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes.
In furtherance thereof, the Corporation’s purposes shall include the following:
To preserve the Patawomeck culture, art and history.
To develop Patawomeck culture, art and history among tribal members.
To educate the general public regarding the Patawomeck heritage.
To engage in any and all lawful activities incidental to the foregoing purposes except as limited herein.
To solicit, use and administer gifts, grants, bequests and devises for the foregoing purposes.
Hopefully in the future we will be able to provide a tribal center for the members of the tribe to work on and perfect their crafts, provide space for meetings and general tribal functions. We would also like to construct a living village that reflects life among the Patawomecks in the 17th century.
Finally, we are hopeful to generate sufficient funds to provide members of the tribe with financial support in the quest for continuing education.
We depend totally on donations and grants to provide the funds necessary to allow us to accomplish our mission.
All donations are tax deductible.
If you would like to make a donation to help support these worthwhile endeavors, please make your check or money order payable to the Patawomeck Heritage Foundation and mail to:
