2018 IFIP Global Indigenous Funders Conference

Host Organization: International Funders for Indigenous Peoples


In January 2017, IFIP adopted a new strategic framework with the goal to expand the sphere of funding and collaborative action among funders and Indigenous Peoples to advance issues of importance to Indigenous communities. This comes at a time when our members have emphasized the importance of flexibility, collaboration, intersectionality and intercultural philanthropy, where we embrace reciprocal relationships with Indigenous communities.

IFIP’s Global Indigenous Funders Conference will facilitate this transformation.  The conference aims to achieve this by building on IFIP’s yearly programming, which addresses funding strategies and continued peer learning. The conference will challenge funders on how to practice the kind of philanthropy that fosters relationships based on the 4R’s of Indigenous philanthropy (respect, responsibility, reciprocity and relationships) and sustains them. It will provide the learning space to tackle these issues and will facilitate the building of support networks to implement solutions.

This year’s tracks include:
Track 1: Expanding the Sphere of Funding: Shifting Roadblocks to Resourcing, Silos to Synergy.
Track 2: Resilience and Revitalization of Indigenous Knowledge and Practice.
Track 3: Potentializing and Supporting Indigenous Self Determination: Lessons and Opportunities
