Sustained investment in Native American small business development is imperative to a philanthropic agenda focused on economic justice. Philanthropy centers justice and expedites the growth of Native American
wealth building by channeling grant dollars and impact investments toward the ecosystems of Native CDFIs, community centered funds, Native-led philanthropic intermediaries, and Native-led nonprofits and for-profits serving Native American small businesses and entrepreneurs. Doing this work requires funders to be in right relationship with Native American leaders and communities by building relationships based on truth, mutual respect, justice and shared humanity among Native and non-Native people.
