Tribal Nations Listening Session Report

Uncovering the Funding Priorities of Tribal Nations and Native Communities

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.

We want to ensure that all Tribal and Indigenous communities are represented in our data and we need your help. 

In 2024, we'll be releasing the 2nd edition of NAP’s Tribal Nations Listening Session Report to inform Native and Indigenous communities, funders, and the larger philanthropic sector on the funding priorities identified both nationally and regionally. We need your help to ensure that this survey is representative of current realities and priorities of Indigenous peoples.
