20 07 2016

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy has posted a Notice of Intent to Issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “First Steps Toward Developing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency on Tribal Lands – 2016” in August or September.
Through the planned FOA, the Office of Indian Energy intends to solicit applications from Indian tribes (including Alaska Native Regional Corporations and Village Corporations) and Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations to:
• Conduct energy options analyses
• Benchmark baseline energy use and efficiency options
• Develop energy organizations
• Conduct climate resiliency planning
• Establish policy, regulations, and codes to reduce energy use or promote energy develop
• Obtain skills and training related to energy use and development.
Part of a comprehensive strategy for maximizing the development and deployment of energy solutions for the benefit of American Indians and Alaska Natives, the planned FOA will complement the technical assistance the Office offers by providing funding to help tribal communities develop and sustain strategic energy solutions.

Don’t Miss Our Presentation at the Advancement Northwest Forum on Strategic Fundraising

2 06 2016

“Lessons Learned From Tribal Capital Campaigns-Tribal Philanthropy in Action”

First Annual Advancement Northwest Forum on Strategic Fundraising June 16-17, 2016

Join us June 17th for a lively and engaging session in which we explore Tribal capital campaigns to fund culturally-appropriate buildings like a longhouse, education center, library or museum.  These first-time capital efforts received generous support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Norcliffe Foundation among many others as well as a $1 million earmark from the state of Washington and $1 million in Heritage Resource Center funds.  As the very first capital campaign for these Tribes we learned a lot about how to make these efforts successful and would like to share those lessons with you!  For example how to create patron lists for your special event when you’ve never held a special event or how to translate your case in a way the funder will not only appreciate it, but fund it.  We’ll also explore how to create and support an active and committed volunteer base that can make a big difference in a campaign’s success. We’ll also talk about some Tribe’s giving programs and how best to seek funding for your program.  See you there!

Presenters: Don Chalmers, SparrowHawk Consulting and Nicole Sieminski, Executive Director, The Tulalip Foundation
