About this funder:



We are raising and mobilizing funds for the Flicker Fund to direct critical resources to the most vulnerable in our already challenged communities. The Flicker Fund provides direct grant support to stressed Indigenous communities on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, where some are already facing issues of hunger, lack of access to water, and unable to secure basic hygiene and material supplies needed for everyday life.

As the grandmother of Native philanthropy, our organization is a trusted entity that anchors the Indigenous movement and that generates and re-distributes support to Native Peoples and communities worldwide. It is urgent now that so many systems are overstretched and exhausted in just the last few weeks, and this situation is continuing to escalate.

Flicker Fund goes directly to Indigenous community generated and led initiatives, providing:

  • Basic and urgent health, wellness, and hygiene needs of the most vulnerable with a focus on elders, multi-generational households, and families with children under the age of 5 years old.
  • Traditional healing practices and remedies, food systems, and immune support.
  • Historic and cultural teachings, stories, and lifeways that advance traditional knowledge systems that inform community members on health, healing, and moving forward with vitality.
