National Directory of Philanthropy for Native Americans Featuring Corporate, Foundation, and Religious Grant Makers.
Meiners, Phyllis A., Ed.; Sanford, Greg A.
This directory profiles 39 private sector grant makers that are prominent funders of Native American programs. Since this directory is national in scope, grant makers whose philanthrophy is limited to one state or a single metropolitan area are not included. The first section lists 24 private family charitable foundations established by wealthy individuals to support a wide range of projects and agencies. The 12 corporations listed in the second section operate two types of contributions programs: grants directly from corporate revenues, and corporate foundations that manage contributions activities. Many corporations employ both methods. The third section lists three religious institutions that specifically target philanthropy for Native Americans. Church philanthropy is conducted through an array of institutions ranging from individual congregations to programs operated by national church judicatories. Entries include complete address and phone number, national officers and directors, application deadline, special interests, geographic interest, sample grants, foundation description and priorities, restrictions, application procedures, assets, expenditures, number of grants, year, high and low awards, and notes. The corporate section also lists national corporation officers and directors, business activity, national sales in dollars, number of employees, and public or private status of stock. The religious institution section also lists denomination, branch, order, jurisdiction, and governing body. (TD)
