Membership

JOIN OR RENEW MEMBERSHIP

NAP is the only national organization that engages a gathering of non-profits, philanthropy, emerging leaders and Native communities for discussions and collaborative action for building philanthropy rooted in Native traditions and values and to educate and empower our communities about current practices in Native philanthropy.

NAP’s new membership structure will be based on three major categories: philanthropicnonprofit, and affiliate. An unlimited number of staff and board members can now receive benefits through organizational memberships. NAP’s new membership structure will also align more closely with our philanthropic affinity group partners in CHANGE Philanthropy. These groups base their philanthropic institutional membership on the size of the foundation portfolio.
