First Nations Development Institute


Our Philanthropic Mission Our mission is to strengthen American Indian economies to support healthy Native communities. Who We Are First Nations Development Institute is the largest American Indian economic rights organization based in the United States. For more than 30 years, First Nations Development Institute has educated and supported hundreds of Native communities by providing the training tools, program models and financial resources required for creating, strengthening and retaining community-based Native nonprofit and tribal organizations. What We Believe At First Nations, we believe that only solutions provided by Native peoples, for Native people, and defined within their own development strategies and cultural values, will succeed. In harmony with this philosophy, we work with Native communities where we are welcomed and invited – ensuring that our assistance will help projects move forward and be implemented in accordance with Native community values and priorities.
