For 17 years, International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP) has been a leader in the field of bringing greater awareness, education and cooperation to Indigenous philanthropy. IFIP is the only global donor affinity group dedicated solely to Indigenous peoples around the world. In 2016, IFIP organized the Latin America Indigenous Funders Conference which brough together philanthropists, donor agencies, and Indigenous visionaries in a powerful and informative event, resulting in concrete actions that will advance Indigenous philanthropy to the next level.

How We Helped

With Lush's support, The Latin America Indigenous Funders Conference resulted in new networks of support for Indigenous communities that stand in opposition to the destruction of the world’s remaining resources.
