Grants of up to $10,000 to USA organizations in eligible Northwestern states for summer programs that benefit Native American youth. Funding is intended to support a wide range of projects that will provide opportunities, foster community engagement, and promote health among youth from local Tribal Nations and Native Communities. Applicants must be headquartered, and provide services, in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington.

Through this initiative, Potlatch Fund will provide grant support to summertime projects that share their vision of investing in Native youth as the current and future leaders. The Fund seeks new or existing programs with the important goal of providing Native youth the leadership skills to strengthen their resiliency, cultural identity and awareness, increase positive engagement in their community and promote healthy choices and lifestyles.

This initiative will support Native youth in their transformation from childhood to young adulthood by providing resources to their home communities as they equip the youth with cultural knowledge that builds resilience, leadership, health, and wellness.


  • Provide access to participation in traditional cultural activities to help build leadership skills, knowledge, cultural awareness and engagement within and beyond their community (for example: canoe journeys, rites of passage, connecting with the land and traditional ecological knowledge, and summer culture camps).
  • Create strong and positive networks that include Elders, peers, extended family, and community members who are invested in supporting and mentoring Native youth.
  • Build youths’ inner resilience and strength to resist drug and alcohol abuse, depression and suicide, and the adverse effects of intergenerational poverty through participation in traditional culture.
  • Potlatch Fund’s mission is to expand philanthropy within Tribal Nations and Native Communities in the Northwest by inspiring and building upon the Native tradition of giving. The Fund supports organizations that are aligned with their mission of honoring the Native tradition of giving, sharing, and reciprocity by giving back to the community.
