Village Earth will be presenting on Fiscal Sponsorship for Indigenous Organizations at the International Funders for indigenous People’s Conference “Indigenous Peoples and Philanthropy: Strengthening Alliances for the Next Seven Generations” May 25 – 27, 2001 at the Oneida Nation, New York. International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP), an affinity group of the Council on Foundations, serves grantmakers committed to sharing knowledge, building coalitions, and increasing funding to Indigenous Peoples. IFIP creates a bridge where the philanthropic and Indigenous worlds meet to understand and collaborate with each other. IFIP serves both communities by initiating meetings that otherwise would never happen. IFIP’s Tenth Annual Conference on Haudenosaunee territory in upstate New York coincides with the United Nations Permanent Forum for Indigenous Issues, which runs from May 16-27 in New York City.
