Native Ways Federation Announces #GiveNative Campaign for GivingTuesday’s Global Day of Giving

St. Paul, Minn. (October 19, 2022) – Native Ways Federation (NWF) will be launching a #GiveNative campaign in Giving Tuesday. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement driven by individuals, organizations, communities, and charities in countries all around the world.

The impact of GivingTuesday goes well beyond charitable donations. It inspires giving in all its forms from encouraging kindness to raising money for local non-profits and celebrating generosity. The movement is an opportunity for global unity through the power of generosity.

In collaboration with GivingTuesday, the #GiveNative campaign will launch on November 29, 2022 and updates will be made across all NWF social media platforms. Native-led nonprofits that wish to participate may visit the NWF website for further #GiveNative resources. Additional campaign activities include:

      • Creating an online scavenger hunt for participants to learn more about Native nonprofits.
      • Partnering with Native nonprofits to build #GiveNative interest across all digital platforms. 

“The #GiveNative campaign is an opportunity to uplift the needs of Native communities using the globally recognized generosity platform of GivingTuesday. Native-led organizations have the solutions to the issues our communities are facing. We know our strengths and are best positioned to help our people. #GiveNative on GivingTuesday helps us to shed light on the importance of these Native-led nonprofits and the critical needs that only they can addressboth authentically and accurately.”
