Press Release: Report Shows Declines in Large Foundation Giving to Native Americans

First Nations Report Highlights Declines in Large Foundations Giving to Native Americans

Annual giving by large foundations to Native causes declined by a hefty 29%, a $35 million drop.

(Please note that if you don’t already have one, you will need to create a free online account in order to download the reports.)

“It’s disheartening and a little maddening,” said Michael Roberts, President & CEO of First Nations, “that during the Great Recession, grantmaking to Indian causes by large philanthropy was cut in half – that as Indians, we bore the burden of philanthropy’s decreased giving. And although the markets have returned and foundation portfolios have recovered, grantmaking to Indian causes has not returned to previous levels and we continue to lose ground.”

Culture-Based Education Repository (CBER) is a project of the National Indian Education Association (NIEA) designed to house culture-based education (CBE) curriculum aligned with Common Core State Standard (CCSS). The repository will serve as a clearinghouse for quality curriculum respectful of cultural and traditional knowledge and utilizing innovative instructional strategies to ensure Native students succeed. The purpose of the CBER is not to endorse a particular curriculum, product, or template, but to instead provide educators of Native students with the best resources for increasing the educational attainment of Native students.

There are two objectives for this project:

  1. Increase the supply of quality lessons and units aligned to CBE and CCSS that are readily available to all teachers, curriculum developers, and administrators.
  2. Provide educators with strategies, resources, and tools to strengthen the teacher-student connection that will enable their students to succeed.
