  • Title: Swift Eagle - Charitable Foundation
    Descriptive info: .. OUR MISSION:.. To provide swift financial assistance to Eagle County residents for living and personal expenses during times of crisis or hardship.. OUR PHILOSOPHY:.. Our common ground is friendship and a love of the valley in which we live.. We believe in community giving back to community; friends taking care of friends and in the power of individuals to help one another.. We are a 100% volunteer organization and 100% of what we raise goes directly to people in need (less just a tiny bit for stamps and insurance).. We do not doubt that a small group of people can make a difference.. With your help we know we can.. THE ORIGIN OF SWIFT EAGLE: DAVID'S DREAM.. Swift Eagle was founded in 2004 by nineteen longtime Eagle County friends.. It began in response to a dream of David Haakenson s, directing him to give back to the community by starting a charitable foundation whose purpose would be to swiftly help those in crisis in Eagle County.. When he finally shared the dream  ...   coach of all time.. While a player in the NBA for the New York Knicks, Phil gave basketball clinics in South Dakota on the Lakota Indian Reservation.. Because of the unique wing-like spread of his arms when guarding his opponents, he was given the name Ounacho Wambli, which means Swift Eagle in Lakota.. David shared the story with Phil, and he, a believer in the karma of dreams, agreed to be Swift Eagle s figurehead and honorary chairman.. Swift Eagle has left the field of dreams to become a reality, an integral and respected arm of the county s service nonprofits.. As a grass roots organization, it appeals to and is strongly supported by those who live and work here.. FOUNDERS.. President - David Haakenson.. Vice President - Stewart Eves..
