Native Ways Federation

In 2006, a group of seven national Native-led nonprofit organizations founded Native Ways Federation (NWF) to activate and expand informed giving to nonprofits in Indian Country through donor education and advocacy. In March of 2020, Native Ways Federation hired its first Executive Director.

Our founding members are: American Indian College Fund, American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), Association on American Indian Affairs, First Nations Development Institute, National Indian Child Welfare Association, Native American Rights Fund, and Running Strong for American Indian Youth.
