Native Americans are a richly diverse and growing population, but as an ethnicity, they are disproportionately affected by disasters. This reality is true for those who live on reservations and in urban areas. And yet, Native Americans are greatly underfunded by philanthropy: From 2002 to 2016, large U.S. foundations gave, on average, 0.4% of total annual giving explicitly for Native American communities and causes.

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) is hosting a webinar to explore how funders can increase their funding to Native causes and groups after a disaster. The speakers will discuss different ways of being in relationship with Indigenous communities to build the trust needed for a respectful and authentic funder-grantee relationship.

If you require any accommodations to fully participate in this program, please contact [email protected].


This webinar is co-sponsored by United Philanthropy ForumThe Funders Network and Native Americans in Philanthropy.
