Investing in Native Communities

This web portal contains funding data, research, historical context, and resources to help users: 1) Understand why funding for Native communities is important; 2) Visualize the landscape of philanthropic funding over the years; and 3) Learn from the knowledge and experiences of other organizations. Their goal is to centralize and provide access to crucial information needed by foundations who are interested in supporting Native communities and causes. The information on the site can help funders who are delving into this work for the first time as well as more experienced funders who want to increase their capacity and knowledge. Investing in Native Communities is a partnership of Native Americans in Philanthropy and Candid, with support from the Bush Foundation, Henry Luce Foundation, Marguerite Casey Foundation, Northwest Area Foundation, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
