Tribal Nations Listening Sessions Report Preview

A Preview of Initial Findings and Funding Priorities

Indigenous communities currently receive less than half of 1% of philanthropic dollars.

Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) has conducted a nationwide survey of Tribal leaders, Tribal government officials, Native non-profit organizational leaders, Indigenous community organizations, and Elders to identify the funding priorities of Tribal Nations and Native communities.

These funding priorities are meant to create a clear roadmap for philanthropic partnerships and investment.

We are excited to reveal a preview of these initial findings. We hope that in sharing the beginnings of this crucial research, we can prompt discussion and action in the necessary spaces to further strengthen the pathways to equitable and effective philanthropy for Native communities.

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.
