Together, we are powering reciprocity and investment in Native communities.


Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) is a membership-based organization that promotes reciprocity and investment in, with, and for Native peoples to build healthy and sustainable communities for all. Through partnerships and relationships for the past 26 years, NAP has become a powerful and growing network of Native and non-Native nonprofits, tribal communities, foundations and community leaders committed to engaging, learning and sharing resources and best practices grounded the Native tradition of reciprocity.

All are welcome to join the NAP circle!

NAP is not a grantmaker. NAP is supported by membership revenue, grants, fee-for service, consulting services and the generosity of communities.

Together, we advance these three strategic directions:

  • Engage Native and non-Native practitioners of philanthropy to focus on sustainable Native communities.
  • Educate to instill Native philanthropic values into contemporary practice.
  • Empower Native philanthropic leadership to be effective practitioners.
