Project Details

What We Need
  • Analysis of the board of directors' governance practices, stewardship, membership, revenue generation and executive management
  • Identification of the board’s strengths and recommendations for areas of improvement for board members collectively and individually
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a general overview of our strengths and weaknesses, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have some internal anylysis, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $10,298 , allowing us to hire someone to help us with grant writing.

We are a new non-profit and our board is mostly made of elders and members of our tribal community. The ways of the western world are very different from indigenous practices. It has been difficult governing the board and requesting the participation level I need but also respecting the indigenous ways and habits.
I need help inspiring my board.
I would love review of my current business practices, strategic planning and communication.

Our Mission

"Indigenous Re-Generation is a 501c3 that exists to inspire Native Communities on re-generative living concepts, through food cultivation, medicinal farming, culture and eco-village education programs, to achieve re-indigenization and true Tribal sovereignty."

Our programming is focused on; traditional and contemporary food cultivation, environmental awareness and re-connection to the land, traditional plant education and integration, Indigenous primitive survival skills, healthy self expression through music, art and cultural activities, regenerative agriculture concepts and sustainable building techniques. All of our programming is designed from an Indigenous view, overseen by elders on our board and is aligned with holistic practices for modern benefits.
