Overview
The Native American-led Colorado Plateau Foundation helps to build more resilient, locally led nonprofits serving native communities on the Colorado Plateau, and supports the work of these organizations to protect water supplies, sacred places, and endangered landscapes; revitalize language; and ensure food security through sustainable, community-based agriculture across the plateau. In particular, their grantees are working to address water supplies contaminated by uranium mining; stop harmful new energy development; and protect and restore cultural landscapes, including in and around Bears Ears National Monument and the Grand Canyon National Park. They also educate philanthropy about the needs and opportunities (or rationale and purpose) for grantmaking in native communities.
