Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA) is a 501c3 nonprofit committed to championing hope for a brighter future for Native Americans living on remote and impoverished reservations. Collaborating with reservation partners, we provide immediate relief and support long-term solutions for strong, self-sufficient Native American communities. PWNA is a trusted partner and resource for Native Americans with the highest needs in the U.S. We care about quality of life and the self-determined goals of the tribes. Formerly known as National Relief Charities, we provide critical supplies like food and water; support education, capacity building for emerging leaders, and community-led initiatives for sustainable gains; and connect outside resources to the reservations. PWNA programs ( NPRA, SWRA, AIEF, RAR, SNRF, NAA, SWIRC and NRF) support Northern Plains and Southwest reservation aid, education and animal welfare. PWNA aids 250,000 Native Americans each year and yet there is more to do.
