YWCA North Central Indiana is pleased to announce it received an annual contribution of $25,000 from the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. The gift is part of the Tribe’s voluntary local agreement with the City of
South Bend to share revenue from its Four Winds® South Bend casino. This is the third annual contribution YWCA North Central Indiana has received from the Pokagon Band, which will reach a total of $125,000 over five years.

“We are so very grateful to the members of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi said YWCA CEO/President Susan Tybon. “The past year has been challenging, as we work to keep women and children in crisis safe from both abuse and COVID-19. But, we know with kind community partners like the Pokagon Band, we will continue to meet the challenge,” added Tybon.

“The Pokagon Band is very proud to be able to continue our annual voluntary contributions to the YWCA North Central Indiana, which plays a vital role in serving the community,” said Matthew Wesaw, Tribal Chairman of the Pokagon Band and CEO of the Pokagon Gaming Authority. “Although the challenges due to COVID-19 persist, we must continue to find ways to support individuals and families, especially those with the greatest need. We commend YWCA North Central Indiana for their continued efforts to
serve the community during the current environment.”
