Fundraising Values

Forge Project invites funders to join us in a reciprocal exchange that centers experiential learning about systems of repair and restitution.

By providing a channel for tangible wealth redistribution, we enact our mandate to cultivate and advance Native leadership through direct support of Native cultural workers. Indigenous self-determination is core to our organization and our values-aligned approach to fundraising and philanthropy. Forge Project hopes to catalyze philanthropic relationships that respect distinct cultural practices among Indigenous nations and communities in which resources and responsibilities are intertwined.
