Ballard, USA Funds senior vice president, program and corporate development. Carl Dalstrom, USA Funds president and CEO, said, “In keeping with USA Funds’ nonprofit mission to enhance access to higher education, we are pleased to support the American Indian College Fund and the students it supports.”

“USA Funds has been a key partner with the American Indian College Fund to ensure that needy American Indian students earn a college education to ensure a better future for themselves and their families,” said Richard B.
