The Native Ways Federation (NWF) was founded in 2008 by a group of seven national Native-led nonprofit organizations (including the Association) to activate and expand informed giving to nonprofits in Native Country through donor education and advocacy.
NWF’s focus on donor education and advocacy, combined with helping donors understand the ethical environment around giving in Native Country, fills a gap that has historically resulted in bringing more harm than good to Native Peoples and communities as well as to the nonprofits who serve them. While well intentioned, all too often, uninformed donors invest in organizations that do not act in the best interest of Native Peoples, or shy away from investing at all due to broad public misconceptions and misinformation about Native Peoples.
