About the 30th Anniversary Celebration & Summit

Native Americans in Philanthropy is honored that so many of our supporters, allies, and Native leaders were able to join us for this year’s 30th Anniversary Celebration & Summit. During this important time of learning, we shared stories and celebrated the longevity and hard work of NAP throughout the years.

The Summit gave us time to hear from Native leaders from across Indian Country about the important work that is happening to affect positive change and healing in our communities and the ways in which organizations and professionals in philanthropy can support the growth of this good work.

We also launched and publicly presented our newest resource, the website portal  “Investing in Native Communities”. The portal provides users with a one-stop shop for data related to foundation giving to Native organizations for nearly the past two decades; information and data that will prove invaluable to all of us who are seeking equity for Native communities.

Moving into the next 30 years, it is our commitment to our members, allies, and supporters to continue to lead the future in advocacy for healing, equity, and justice in the philanthropic sector. We believe that supporting Native professionals who serve philanthropy and Indian Country is crucial. We will continue to create opportunities for foundations and others to better understand Native America and to better know the organizations who deserve their support.
