We are currently accepting proposals from Indigenous-led, Indigenous-focused organizations and community groups working in our areas of focus.

PTM Foundation Grant Funding Eligibility Details

Introduction: PTM Foundation and Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) invite proposals to promote Indigenous Rights by and for Indigenous Peoples. The eligible area includes the United States. Grantees will be federally recognized Tribal Nations and/or organizations that are Native-led.



Issue: Indigenous Peoples face persistent and enduring challenges to their communities, their lands, and their basic human rights. They face these challenges with extremely limited support from the broad spectrum of philanthropic institutions. There is a dire need for small, unrestricted funds as sources of financial backing for projects led by Indigenous Peoples.


Scope of Proposals Sought: PTM Foundation will consider proposals for projects that help fulfill our organizational mission. To check if your project is aligned and eligible, click HERE.



Nondiscrimination Policy of PTM Foundation: PTM Foundation does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, age, status as a veteran, national origin or any other protected class. Applicants must hold similar standards.


Eligibility of Projects: Projects must be located in the United States. Applicants must be Tribal Nations or organizations that are Native-led and tax-exempt/non-profit with determinations by the Internal Revenue Service of 501(c)(3) status, schools, or agencies of government.
