Woven Ways could not have been made without the support of many generous donors. Now that the film is finished, donor support is needed for travel expenses for Navajo activists to attend film festivals, and to translate the film into Navajo for thousands living on the reservation who do not speak English. Your support is also greatly appreciated for the House/Day Girls Scholarship Fund (see below).

Education is vitally important to Navajo youth. We are pleased to provide donors with an opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of the daughters of the House and Day families, through tax-deductible donations to the House/Day Daughters Scholarship Fund.
Eldest daughter, Tanisha Deidra House, is a senior at the Navajo Preparatory School where she plays basketball for the highly competitive girl’s team. She is 17 years old, enjoys reading, math, and horseback riding. Tanisha loves to be challenged, is very smart, confident, and out-going. Her mom says that when she was young, Tanisha loved working with her father wiring up the houses and the Hogan. The experience has inspired her to think about majoring in electrical engineering at college.
Alisha Marie House is 13 and is an eighth grader at Thoreau Middle School. Her mom writes, “…she is kind of shy, enjoys reading, math and loves to work with her hands on mechanical things.” Bernice also says that Alisha is fascinated with Law Enforcement and hopes to develop her career in that field.
Youngest of the three, 11-year-old Felisha Desiree House also attends Thoreau Middle School where she is a 6th grader. Felisha always dreamed of becoming a Princess. Her dream came true when Felisha was crowned Princess of Crownpoint Elementary School in a ceremony at the annual Eastern Fair Parade in July. The local radio station interviewed Felisha, and she got to meet Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley. The most talkative of the bunch, the family is always telling her that she would make a good lawyer one day.
Nicole Lynn Day just turned 16. A very soft spoken girl, Nicole is as sweet as she is shy. She began her junior year at Thoreau High School. Nicole is currently working hard to prepare herself for the cross-country team with which she will be competing this fall.

|The Global Center,
our fiscal sponsor
Woven Ways has been awarded fiscal sponsorship by the International Center for Global Communications, Inc. (d.b.a. The Global Center). The Global Center’s mission is to promote and foster public awareness of the peoples, cultures and current affairs of nations throughout the world, and to encourage peace and understanding through various forms of media and other methods of information exchange.
What is fiscal sponsorship? Fiscal sponsorship is an important fund raising tool for documentary films. Fiscal sponsorship means that a registered non-profit organization (501©3), in this case, The Global Center, agrees to become the “fiscal agent” for the film project. The Global Center charges a 5% administrative fee for this service, which is the smallest amount charged by any of the fiscal agents we researched.
Why is having a fiscal sponsor so important? Woven Ways is an educational and public-interest film project. A fiscal sponsor enables us to qualify for grants from charitable foundations that support public interest projects.
Having a fiscal sponsor also means that individuals can donate funds to Woven Ways, and they will receive a tax-deduction for their contribution.
How does fiscal sponsorship work? Anyone who wants to contribute financially to Woven Ways sends us a check made out to “The Global Center.” We send the donor a thank you note along with a receipt for the donation for tax purposes. We then forward the donation to The Global Center, and they send a check to Woven Ways for the donation, minus 5%.
