We are excited to share with you our newStrategic Framework!
As an IFIP member and friend you are already well aware of the leading role IFIP has played in developing the field of Indigenous Peoples’ funding and fostering partnerships among Indigenous Peoples and funders around the globe that support indigenous solutions.
Our Strategic Framework responds to our stakeholders’ input and sets the stage to strengthen IFIP and its programs at a time when collaboration and commitment to advancing Indigenous issues is imperative. As a theory of change IFIP accelerates the self-determined development of Indigenous Peoples through improving the responsiveness of Indigenous Peoples’ funding.
Starting in 2017 our new Strategic Framework will guide our efforts. Key among these is the need to further increase the funding available for the work of Indigenous Peoples’ organizations to realize their life plans and secure their rights as Indigenous Peoples.
Expand the sphere of funders and collaborative action among funders and Indigenous
Peoples to support and advance issues of importance to Indigenous Peoples
Foster a network reaching beyond IFIP members that strengthens collaboration to
improve funding practice and alliances supporting Indigenous Peoples’ rights across
issues and movements
Facilitate innovation, learning and knowledge generation on funding practices
throughout the network to support Indigenous Peoples’ rights across issues and
Ensure IFIP has the organizational capacity to implement its objectives to the greatest
We look forward to working with you as we implement our 5-year Strategic Framework to bring Indigenous Philanthropy to the next level, making sure that it is underpinned by Respect, Reciprocity, Responsibility and Relationships. You can view our full Strategic Framework here.
