$7,500 Goal

The Division of Indian Work (DIW) has been providing culturally-specific programming to the urban American Indian community in Minneapolis for over 70 Years!

For Give to the Max Day 2023, DIW has a $7,500 goal, which will be used for general operating support.  This support will allow us flexibility to support those programs that may need additional revenue as we finish out 2023 and look forward to continuing to serve our community into 2024.  

MORE ABOUT DIW:  In 2017, we became our very own 501(c)(3) and with that a truly American Indian-led organization.  Both our staff and our Board of Directors reflect the American Indian community that we are honored to serve. 

DIW continues to provide services that help the urban American Indian community.  All services are provided free-of-charge to over 7,000 unduplicated people annually.

OUR MISSION:  To support and strengthen urban American Indian people through culturally-based education, traditional healing approaches, and leadership development.   To this end, we focus on community and delivering programs and services directly or in partnership with other organizations.

OUR PROGRAMS:  Work to nurture and guide youth; provide services for Elders; foster healthy families; end family violence; offer supportive housing to long-term foster care boys; and address hunger issues, all with a focus on culture.
