What We Do

Native Americans in Philanthropy: Educators, Advocates and Storytellers

Native Americans in Philanthropy advances responsible and responsive investments in Native communities through education and advocacy within the philanthropic sector. Whether hosting regional summits, training Native leaders, or connecting organizations to opportunities, we seek to restore all Native communities to full health and sustainability.

Over several decades, Native Americans in Philanthropy has become a powerful and continuously growing network of Native and non-Native nonprofits, tribal communities, foundations and community leaders committed to engaging, learning and sharing resources and best practices grounded in Native values and traditions. We have been a consistent advocate for the protection of tribal sovereignty, land and water rights, women’s rights, Native youth leadership, Native inter-generational healing. Through partnerships and cross-movement advocacy efforts, our organization works to elevate key issues and to address the pressing needs of our communities with culturally comprehensive approaches.
