NWF Executive Director Carly Bad Heart Bull, JD, wrote a response to the Center for Effective Philanthropy’s report on Native nonprofit funding disparities, and how foundations can address these inequities:

“Indigenous communities have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and Native nonprofits have worked tirelessly to address the massive toll it has taken on our people. With one in 168 Native children having lost a caregiver between April 2020 and June 2021, supporting Native nonprofits is more important than ever. Indigenous-controlled organizations know our communities and how to best serve our people. Investing in Native-led solutions ensures that dollars meant to address disparities actually impact the inequities our people contend with.”
