This year marks our 12th Anniversary, and we are asking for your support to reach our year-end goal of $14,400. Your gift supports Indigenous entrepreneurs like Chholing Taha have access to the business and marketing supports they need.
Your donation to MNIBA is crucial, and we will explain why... MNIBA is a critical resource hub for emerging and established Indigenous entrepreneurs and artists. MNIBA is privileged to work with brilliant and innovative Indigenous entrepreneurs like Chholing Taha, an artist entrepreneur and accomplished visual storyteller. She is one of the featured artists in MNIBA's 2020 Winter Solstice Art Catalog.
"I wanted to let you know how successful your Winter Solstice Art catalog has been for me. I was very, very worried about this holiday season as 60% of the small shops who sold my prints and cards went permanently out of business. So I wasn't sure how things would go for me and my family.
I am pleased to tell you I have had a 300% increase in sales and an unbelievable 1019% increase in traffic on my online store. Winter would have felt very different for me if folks like yourselves were not working hard for the community.
A big Chi Miigwetch to all who made this possible. Chholing Taha"
Your year-end donation will help secure our $14,400 goal so MNIBA will continue to expand and strengthen its resource hub and grow Mni Sota Indigenous entrepreneurs and artists while serving amazing entrepreneurs like Chholing Taha!
