We envision the building of philanthropy to support Native arts and cultures. To that end, we offer this gathering of resources for Native artists and/or arts & cultural organizations as a springboard to identify career, program and project support. Subscribe to our newsletter for ongoing opportunities.

As we move through these unparalleled times, the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation is concerned for the welfare of everyone, and especially committed to the well-being of Native communities, artists and culture bearers. Native people in every community, town, and state across America have been affected by the pandemic due to the complete shutdown of life as we were accustomed to. We hope that these resources, while not all-encompassing, may help in identifying available support for artists and communities, as well as offer some insight and perspective during this critical period.
