DescriptionThe Fund aims to build on the Native tradition of giving by increasing philanthropy for and among Tribal communities through grants and empowering community leaders with the tools they need to succeed through training. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on Native communities, the Fund will support resiliency actions that create hope, social connection, adaptation, flexibility, and purpose. Grants will be awarded in support of general operating funds, projects, and artists. Eligible applicants must serve and reside in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, or Montana. Programs must serve groups and communities that consist of at least 51 percent Native peoples although that does not apply to individual artists' projects. Eligible applicants include any federally recognized Indian Tribe, Band, Nation, or Alaskan Native Village, formally recognized or currently seeking recognition from the federal government; any state-recognized Indian Tribe, Band, Nation, or Alaskan Native Village, formally recognized or currently seeking recognition vested with the State Legislative Tribal Recognition Authority; nonprofit organizations; and any individual Native artist or descendant of a state or federally recognized tribe.
