INSIGHTS AND STORIES FROM SOME OF OUR PAST FUNDING IN NATIVE COMMUNITIES
Investments in Indian Country
We support multiple pathways to prosperity. We’ve collaborated with local leaders to establish long-term strategic partnerships, strengthen local nonprofits, fuel social entrepreneurship through Native CDFIs and seed tribal college initiatives.
Native Leadership Development
We supported the Native Youth Leadership Alliance (NYLA) to build a movement of young Native leaders committed to strengthening their communities. The NYLA Fellowship trains aspiring youth leaders to tackle issues facing their communities today and tomorrow.
Insights into Granting in Native Communities
Our experience granting to Native-led organizations has yielded these key insights for leaders seeking to invest in their work.
Through our Tribal Ventures program, we’ve collaborated with the Lummi Nation, Cheynenne River Sioux and Turtle Mountain tribes over the course of ten years to develop homegrown programs, policies and infrastructure to advance economic, social and cultural prosperity. We’ve documented work from some of the early years of this commitment.
