More about ONAC's endowment campaign: As you may know, according to Native Americans in Philanthropy and the Foundation Center, philanthropic giving in Indian Country (from U.S. Foundations), as of 2009, was 0.3 percent of total foundation giving. Of this funding, an even smaller amount goes to support Native asset building initiatives. Given this funding climate (which from current review of philanthropic giving by First Nations Development Institute has not shown to differ much from 2009), ONAC has concluded that we need to start an endowment campaign.
Thus, in addition to continuing to apply to foundations that could be a good match, seeking sponsorships, and administering a membership drive, ONAC has launched a $5 million endowment campaign.
ONAC thanks the Chickasaw Nation for their generous lead gift of $250,000 towards our endowment fund. Given the financial responsibilities the tribes have to meet the social service needs of their citizens living in poverty, beyond tribal gifts, ONAC is in need of individual donor and foundation support to help us reach our goal. A strong endowment will make ONAC sustainable and viable well into the future.
