This report is the culmination of an extensive outreach and discussion with Tribal leaders, Tribal government officials, Native non-profit organizational leaders, Indigenous community organizations, and Elders who have generously shared their perspectives. Within its pages, you will find a detailed exploration of the funding priorities of Tribal Nations and Native communities, serving as a clear roadmap for philanthropic partnerships and investments that can truly make a difference.
Join us as we walk through the top five national funding priorities, insights from community leaders, and recommendations for funders and philanthropy overall. It is our goal that by sharing this comprehensive research, we can continue to foster meaningful relationships and catalyze action in the vital spaces dedicated to uplifting and empowering Native communities through philanthropy.
