PTM Foundation exists to support organizations and community projects through unrestricted grant funding. These grants are designed to empower and support vital community services in the areas of community health, voting, human rights, music advocacy, and the environment, through the lens of Indigenous Rights. All grants are paid from the PTM Fund at Oregon Community Foundation.
PTM Foundation is not currently accepting unsolicited grant funding proposals. When we announce our next round of funding, all information will be posted here.
PTM Foundation and Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) have partnered to provide unrestricted grant funding to promote Indigenous Rights by and for Indigenous Peoples. The eligible area is within the United States. Grantees must be federally recognized Tribal Nations or 501c3 Nonprofit organizations, or have a fiscal sponsor who is. Most, if not all, of the organizations we fund are Native-led, Indigenous Peoples-focused.
Native 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.
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. Grantees must hold similar standards.
All funding is reviewed by PTM Foundation's Community Advisory Board and the Board of Directors at Oregon Community Foundation. Our team is not able to help develop 3rd party proposals, or advise on the content of 3rd party proposals, and we are not currently accepting unsolicited funding proposals.
