Flicker Fund
Support for Crisis-Impacted Indigenous Communities Worldwide

A COVID-19 Rapid Response

We are raising and mobilizing funds for the Flicker Fund to direct critical resources to the most vulnerable in our already challenged communities. The Flicker Fund provides direct grant support to stressed Indigenous communities on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, where some are already facing issues of hunger, lack of access to water, and unable to secure basic hygiene and material supplies needed for everyday life.

As the grandmother of Native philanthropy, our organization is a trusted entity that anchors the Indigenous movement and that generates and re-distributes support to Native Peoples and communities worldwide. It is urgent now that so many systems are overstretched and exhausted in just the last few weeks, and this situation is continuing to escalate.

Your support makes a difference and your support is needed now.

DONATE to the Fund


Flicker Fund goes directly to Indigenous community generated and led initiatives, providing:

  • Basic and urgent health, wellness, and hygiene needs of the most vulnerable with a focus on elders, multi-generational households, and families with children under the age of 5 years old

  • Traditional healing practices and remedies, food systems, and immune support

  • Historic and cultural teachings, stories, and lifeways that advance traditional knowledge systems that inform community members on health, healing, and moving forward with vitality

Seventh Generation Fund has already mobilized nearly $100,000 this week in Rapid Response support for basic and urgent needs in grants and material goods through trusted Native community partners and projects like these:

Apsaalooke project focused on delivering food staples, hot lunches, basic hygiene necessities, such as soap, cleaning products, and toiletries to families on the Crow and Northern Cheyenne Reservations.

Ogiek community in Africa working to support three remote villages with sanitation supplies, hygiene information in the Ogiek language and communication networks between villages and with the state governments.

Pueblo Villages in desert southwest organizing young people to deliver food, water, traditional foods, medicine, and sanitation supplies to multipgenerational households in the midst of critical nutritional shortages due to school closures.

Pine Ridge Reservation project providing Lakota-centered health prevention services, traditional foods, and supplies for elders. This project also supports digitizing regular education programming for Lakota youth.

All donations are tax-deductible and deeply appreciated.
