#GiveNative on Giving Tuesday

#GiveNative is a community wide movement to spread awareness of giving to Native-led nonprofits and Giving Tuesday is recognized as the largest global generosity movement year-round. By continuing to launch a #GiveNative campaign on Giving Tuesday, Native Ways Federation (NWF) hopes to spread awareness of the importance of Native-led nonprofits on the largest giving day of the year: Tuesday, November 28, 2023. 

NWF recognizes that Native-led organizations have the solutions to the issues that Native communities are facing. Native-led nonprofits know Native communities and their strengths and how best to help Native people. The systemic funding inequities Native-led organizations face make it harder to implement Native-led solutions. Investing in Native-led nonprofits is the best way to enhance positive change in Native communities.

Below, NWF has supplied content that we encourage you and your organizations to use to promote the #GiveNative campaign. With content ranging from a campaign toolkit with step-by-step instructions on how to help, a save-the-date promotional graphic, and so much more! Later, as we draw closer to Giving Tuesday, we will also grant download access to all of our #GiveNative social media contentso stay tuned!

And remember, you can join us in this endeavor by creating #GiveNative content to post, tag, and share—and share other organization’s content—so that all Native-led organizations may benefit on Giving Tuesday!

The #GiveNative campaign is an opportunity to broadcast the important work happening in the philanthropic field of Indian Country. Native-led organizations are repetitively underrepresented by the mainstream public and this platform supports their voices to be heard on the largest giving day of the year.

DISCLAIMER: While we encourage non-Native foundations and non-Native-controlled nonprofits to join us in uplifting Native-led nonprofits throughout the entirety of the #GiveNative campaign, we request that they refrain from fundraising for non-Native organizations using Native Ways Federation materials. We ask that our materials be used to ethically promote funding equity for Native-controlled nonprofits. We do not condone non-Native nonprofits utilizing our campaign posts and graphics to fundraise for their organizations. 

We define “Native-led” and “Native-controlled” nonprofits as organizations with at least 51 percent of the board of directors and leadership team identifying as American Indian, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian. We also advocate for Native-led organizations whose programs predominantly serve tribes, Native communities, and peoples in tribal and/or off-reservation communities.
