In lieu of the traditional post-Thanksgiving shopping blowout known as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, Chunks will be donating 25% of all sales from 11/27-12/4 to non-profits that support our indigenous American communities. Since I couldn’t decide on one, I’ll be equally splitting the final amount between these organizations.

 native american rights fund

Native American Rights Fund (NARF)

From the website:

Since 1970, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) has provided legal assistance to Indian tribes, organizations, and individuals nationwide who might otherwise have gone without adequate representation. NARF has successfully asserted and defended the most important rights of Indians and tribes in hundreds of major cases, and has achieved significant results in such critical areas as tribal sovereignty, treaty rights, natural resource protection, and Indian education. NARF is a non-profit 501c(3) organization that focuses on applying existing laws and treaties to guarantee that national and state governments live up to their legal obligations.

Throughout its history, NARF has impacted tens of thousands of Indian people in its work for more than 250 tribes. Some examples of the results include:

  • Protecting and establishing the inherent sovereignty of tribes

  • Obtaining official tribal recognition for numerous Indian tribes

  • Helping tribes continue their ancient traditions, by protecting their rights to hunt, fish and use the water on their lands

  • Upholding Native American religious freedom

  • Assuring the return of remains and burial goods from museums and historical societies for proper and dignified re-burial

  • Protecting voting rights of Native Americans

     

american indian college fund

American Indian College Fund

From the website:

We have one unwavering purpose – increasing the number of American Indians who hold college degrees. Currently only 14.5% of American Indians have a college degree – less than half the national average. Every year, we empower more than 4,000 American Indian students to start and stay in school, complete their degrees and launch careers that benefit us all. We have provided 143,281 scholarships and $237.1 million to support American Indian communities.

The College Fund consistently receives top ratings from independent charity evaluators.

  • The College Fund meets the Charity Accountability Standards of the Better Business Bureau‘s Wise Giving Alliance.

  • The College Fund received a Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar.

  • The College Fund consistently receives high ratings from Charity Navigator.

  • The College Fund received a B+ rating from Charity Watch.

 

NDN collective

NDN Collective

From the website:

DEFEND, DEVELOP, DECOLONIZE.

NDN Fund is the impact investing and lending arm of the NDN Collective, providing financing for large-scale Indigenous regenerative community and national development projects that dramatically scale up investment and shift all decision-making power to Indigenous peoples. NDN Fund, along with the entire NDN Collective ecosystem, is creating a paradigm shift in how society invests in economic development by grounding investment strategy in Indigenous systems thinking, recognizing the interconnectedness of all things and our responsibilities to our homelands and each other.

NDN Fund is an emerging Native Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that will move over $100 million in capital to projects that uphold the principles of regenerative and just economies and are both led by and serve Indigenous communities. NDN Fund includes capacity building and technical assistance as part of its future service offering to help prepare Indigenous communities to optimally absorb and sustain this new influx of capital.
