NDN Collective is the most ambitious, systemic effort to empower Indigenous Peoples in the history of philanthropy. We are creating a paradigm change in how society invests in Indigenous Peoples by dramatically scaling up investment and shifting decision-making power. We are doing four key things to create a new ecosystem that supports Indigenous self-determination:

We are dramatically increasing philanthropic investment into Indigenous-led organizations, with the goal of giving out $50M per year in grants.

We are creating an Indigenous-led CDFI to move $100M of for-profit investment into projects led by and serving Indigenous communities.

We are building capacity in Indigenous communities to be able to absorb this new influx of capital.

We are advocating for Indigenous rights and policy changes that will enable our peoples and communities to thrive.


We represent the people we serve—we are Indigenous-led and support Indigenous people and organizations

We think in systems and recognize the interconnectedness of all living things

We are changemakers that have and model a mindset of abundance

We believe in the power of Indigenous self-determination to create a just, equitable world for all people and the planet

We integrate culture and ceremony into our work

We acknowledge and pay respects to our elders and past while taking ownership and control of our future.
