Why should Native communities engage with philanthropy?There are billions of untapped dollars that could support your community from the philanthropy sector. The philanthropy sector spent over $400 billion on various programs and initiatives in 2019, yet less than half of 1% of those funds went to support Native American communities. Through more awareness, education and collaboration we can improve our relationships with and access to the philanthropy sector.
What is NAP’s Tribal Nations Initiative?NAP’s Tribal Nations Initiative (TNI) supports a Native-led movement to bring Tribal Nations and the philanthropy sector together on one centralized platform. Beyond facilitating a space for connection and collaboration, TNI supports Native philanthropists across a spectrum, from established grant makers expanding their impact to those just beginning to explore the landscape. By building visibility, Tribal coalition building, identifying priorities, encouraging meaningful partnerships, developing strategic pathways and creating technical support systems, the TNI aims to indigenize giving, better connect the philanthropy sector, and direct more resources to support Native American communities.
