About Native Ways Federation

In 2008, a group of seven national Native-led nonprofit organizations founded Native Ways Federation (NWF) to activate and expand informed giving to nonprofits in Indian Country through donor education and advocacy. In March of 2020, Native Ways Federation hired its current Executive Director. Our active founding members are: American Indian College Fund, American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), Association on American Indian Affairs, First Nations Development Institute, National Indian Child Welfare Association, and Native American Rights Fund.

Native Ways Federation is positioned at the forefront of change. Our relationships with Native-led non-profits, philanthropy and philanthropy-serving organizations, and others allow us to influence and bridge the gap between these stakeholders and disrupt the “business as usual” models that perpetuate these entities.

We recognize that everything and everyone come into this world with gifts to contribute. We honor those gifts by acting responsibly toward one another. For our employees, this means offering generous and comprehensive benefits, including medical and dental insurance for individuals or families, paid time off through personal time, health and wellness time, holidays, and 6 weeks of paid medical or family leave. We also offer professional and cultural development opportunities to strengthen skills and cultural connections.

Native Ways Federation is an equal opportunity employer and prohibits discrimination or harassment against current or potential employees.
