Decolonizing Wealth Project Redistributes $1 Million Towards Indigenous-Led Sustainability Efforts

The multi-year, multimillion-dollar Indigenous Earth Fund initiative will support systemic and policy-change efforts centered around Indigenous leaders and environmental solutions.

Today, the Decolonizing Wealth Project (DWP) announced the first cohort of grantee partners for its Liberated Capital fund’s latest initiative, the Indigenous Earth Fund (IEF) — which will redistribute more than $1 million in grants to 16 Indigenous-led organizations nationwide to bolster their climate change and conservation campaigns. These organizations are spearheading movement-building efforts that center Indigenous self-determination to promote sustainable food systems, land and forest management, and the protection and conservation of water sources and natural resources.
