The Potlatch Fund is a Native-led non-profit that provides grants and leadership development to Tribal Nations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Nevada.
Less than 1% of philanthropic dollars in the United States are currently given back to Native communities. We seek to address this lack of diversity, and reverse the perception that Tribal Nations lack the need for financial resources and government support.
Our grant-making program focuses on Youth Development, Community Building, Language Preservation & Education, Native Arts, and Native Student Success. We also provide training around financial management, board governance, strategic planning, media management and nonprofit development for past grantees.
By bringing necessary resources back to Tribal Nations and the organizations that serve them, we’re preserving the traditions at the center of Native communities—and building a richer future for all that we serve.
