Pathway Pays it Forward

Paying it forward recognizes the gratitude we feel for what has come our way, and the compassion we have for those in need. We’re all in this together, and we are energized by  innovative ideas that continue to inspire us all. During this time of hardship, our Pathway team is lifting up nonprofits throughout the region who are adapting in innovative ways - whether through new ways of service delivery, creative fundraising or other revenue generating ventures, smart operational adjustments, or  any other brilliant ideas! We will feature one nonprofit in each of Pathway’s monthly newsletters, and the featured nonprofit will receive a $250 donation from Pathway. Nominate an organization who inspires you by sending an email to with the organization’s name and a few lines about their innovative adaptations.

This edition’s Pay it Forward recipient is:

Navajo Santa

Initially formed up to deliver gifts to the Navajo Nation in December,  this year Navajo Santa quickly shifted to meet growing food insecurity needs for the Navajo Nation using strict protocol and ppe to keep their volunteers safe. The Navajo Nation has experienced some of the highest COVID-19 infection rates in the country, and in response to this need, Navajo Santa is providing non only food but also face masks, hand sanitizer, and other basic necessities to help those most at risk.
