At Shee Atiká, our mission is to deliver meaningful value to our shareholders, people, partners, and customers.

“We know how much everyone looks forward to the annual distribution,” said Board Chairman Rob Allen, “and it’s just one of the many ways the board and staff work together to invest in the future of our shareholders.”

This year, the board also approved increased funding for annual and short-term scholarships for shareholders pursuing academic, vocational, and cultural/heritage studies as well as increased funeral benefits.

How is the distribution amount determined?

The distribution amount must be between 75% to 100% of annual net cash income from the SAFE Trust. The percentage within that range is determined by the SAFE Board of Trustees annually. SAFE owns real estate in Colorado as well as the majority of the invested funds at Shee Atiká Investments, LLC. These two sources make up the net cash income used to determine the distribution amount. Revenue from Shee Atiká, Inc.’s other operations are not calculated in the distribution amount.

Why is the 2022 distribution less than last year?

Inflation and rising interest rates affect our everyday lives, whether that’s buying groceries or getting a home loan. These factors also significantly impact Shee Atiká’s investment portfolio. Just like millions of companies and households across the country, a volatile market has produced a lower rate of return on our investment portfolio.
