Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous People
Total donations: $105,000 | Partnership: Since 2018
Celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Self-Determination the mission remains as our founders originally envisioned – dedicated to Indigenous Peoples’ self-determination and the sovereignty of Native nations.
Founded in 1977, the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples emerged from a call from Indigenous communities in the Americas during the cultural, social and political renaissance era of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Leaders of the time, such as our primary founder, the late Daniel Bomberry (Salish/Cayuga), included chiefs, clan mothers, youth and community activists who established the organization to respond to the needs of grassroots Indigenous communities and initiatives engaged in cultural revitalization, leadership development, tribal sovereignty, and culturally appropriate economic development strategies. Seventh Generation Fund grew and evolved into the foremost Indigenous non-profit/social-profit organization in the United States.
