Ways to Give

NICWA works to support the safety, health, and spiritual strength of American Indian and Alaska Native children along the broad continuum of their lives. We support tribes in building the capacity to prevent child abuse and neglect through positive systems change at the state, federal, and tribal levels.

NICWA, based in Portland, Oregon, serves both Native and non-Native individuals, tribes, and organizations across the United States and Canada.Your support enables us to protect Native children and keep them connected to their families, community, and culture.
