International Funders for Indigenous Peoples – IFIP

IFIP is the only global donor affinity group dedicated to indigenous peoples worldwide. Our mission is to expand the sphere of funders and collaborative action among funders and indigenous peoples to support and advance issues of importance to indigenous communities. Donors and indigenous leaders are afforded opportunities to learn from one another at our regional meetings and summits. This face-to-face engagement plants the seeds for trust and enduring collaborations. IFIP educates its members and allies to practice a new paradigm of giving based on “The four R’s of indigenous philanthropy – Respect, Reciprocity, Responsibility and Relationships.”
