Strengthening Native American Communities & Economies
November is Native American Heritage Month in the United States. We are excited to share more information about First Nations Development Institute's Native Language Immersion Initiative, which was launched in 2017 to build on our longtime efforts to support the revitalization and perpetuation of Native languages. We are pleased to share some these efforts in the stories below and provide you with an opportunity to make twice the difference in supporting this important work.
Our Native Language Immersion Initiative is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and other committed foundations. NEH has provided a generous matching grant to support grassroots initiatives in Native communities. So, in honor of Native American Heritage Month this year, we’re asking good friends like you to help us maximize this opportunity by raising $50,000 for this special initiative before December 15, 2018. And because we have matching funds, your gift will double in value and have twice the impact.
