Native Nations Investment Reports
The Bush Foundation invests in Native Americans and the 23 Native nations across our region. This longstanding commitment is core to our mission. How and what we support changes over time as we continue to learn from and with our grantees, partners and Native communities.
In 2017, we made a decision to track and review our past work with Native communities. These reports show our Native-focused investments and highlight some of the organizations and people we support.
Native people represent approximately 2% of the total U.S. population, yet research shows only 0.4% of mainstream U.S. philanthropic dollars are going to serve Native communities. We, and the broader philanthropic community, can and should do better. We strive to do more good every year. These reports are a way for us to track and share our work toward our commitment to Native communities.
