Founded in 2013, the Sacred People Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 corporation. We believe that all people are sacred and our first initiative is dedicated to improving the plight of one very specific group of underserved human beings—Native Americans, especially Native American youth. We strive to improve their situation with honor, dignity and joy. We reach out to the country at large for support. The types of programs that we are interested in funding are programs from any recognized tribe that will positively impact the community. Your donation of time and or money will help make the following types of programs possible.
