Announcing New Giving Circle!
The Return to the Heart Foundation’s (R2HF) Giving Circle was created to support Native Womxn and Girls! Join the Circle in solidarity with colleagues, allies, activists, and community to lift up the voices of Native Womxn and Girls. Monthly support will empower programs which include Microgrants to Traditional Helpers and Healers, Fellows/Ambassadors, and support our work focused on Native Girls.
R2HF is turning the tide on the narrative and flexing to let the world know we are still here, we are strong, we are resilient, and we are bringing healing solutions to our communities, the nation and the world. Because we have been targeted for our land and resources, a genocide has taken place here in the U.S. that has been minimized and swept under the rug is his-story. Healing is happening and it is being led by Indigenous Womxn.
A welcome package is given to circle members who commit to a monthly donation of $25. Be the power that fuels the voices, advocacy, and supports Native Womxn and Girls!

The contributions of Indigenous women have not been visible or significantly included in contemporary social causes.
Against this backdrop, this is the critical moment and opportunity to support an Indigenous Women-led organization, Return to the Heart Foundation, which is focused on uplifting initiatives to achieve long-term narrative change strategies from within social movements.
*Return to the Heart Foundation is fiscally sponsored by Amalgamated Foundation.
