Native Ways Federation (NWF) is officially launching a curated list of Native-led nonprofits to be made available to the public in anticipation of #GiveNative on November 28, 2023—the largest giving day of the year.
In an effort to educate and advocate for Native nonprofits, NWF launched its second annual #GiveNative campaign in alignment with GivingTuesday’s global generosity movement and highlights the need for increased, direct giving to Indigenous communities. Native-led organizations have the solutions to the issues that Native communities are facing. NWF is thrilled to launch this resource highlighting Native-led organizations who are working across issue areas throughout Indian Country.
Once all signups are processed, the listing will include over 100 self-identified Native nonprofits that meet four criteria: being Native-led, demonstrating specific service to Native people and communities, having U.S.A. nonprofit status, and being in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization.
Although the final signup deadline has passed, NWF is accepting last minute applications until November 14, 2023. These later submissions are not guaranteed entry onto the list, however, NWF will work hard to process these applications in time for Giving Tuesday.
Individuals, foundations, and the general public are encouraged to learn more about each Native nonprofit on the list and discover their broader effect on the Native community at large. NWF encourages all members of the public to be active and informed givers during the largest giving day of the year, and we hope this public listing is one tool that helps achieve this.
