This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
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.
- How funders can increase their funding to Native causes and groups after a disaster
