                                      The Land, Water, and People

                                      As the first caretakers of the land in these United States, Indigenous peoples have a special connection to the land, water, and many species that share their world. The Earth is a part of their culture, creation stories, and ways of life. Indigenous peoples have been stewards of the environment since time immemorial, preserving the land, water, and species that have sustained their communities for generations. They have long learned the delicate balance of sustainable practices while living in harmony with the environment. The NAP Tribal Nations Initiative recognizes the importance of this relationship and supports Native-led climate and conservation work.

                                      Tribal Nations Collaborative Fund

                                      Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) is partnering with the Christensen Fund and Biodiversity Funders Group to launch a new Tribal Nations Conservation Pledge & Funding Collaborative. This initiative calls on the philanthropic sector to significantly invest in conservation projects led by Tribal Nations. Our goal is to reach $100 million in new commitments. This pledge and fund will serve as a centralized platform to inform, coordinate, and fund Tribal Nation conservation work.

                                      Matching Funds for Tribal Nations

                                      Through its Tribal Nations Initiative, a partnership with NAP and NFWF will fund the America the Beautiful Challenge (ATBC) match requirements for awarded Native Nation projects via the 2022 RFP. The ATBC requires three percent non-federal match for applicants, of which, 0.75 percent must be a cash match; the NAP TNI will cover the full match needs for Tribes for these projects through its Tribal Nations Conservation Collaborative Fund. Grantees may provide additional match above and beyond the requirements.
