Grant Application

Introduction: PTM Foundation and Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) invite proposals to promote civic engagement by Indigenous Peoples. The eligible area includes the United States. Grantees will be federally recognized Tribal Nations and/or organizations that are Native-led. 10 grants will be given in the amount of $1,000 each. The deadline for submission of proposals to PTM Foundation is 12:00 midnight, August 15th, 2020.


Issue: Indigenous Peoples face persistent and enduring challenges to their communities, their lands, and their basic human rights. They face these challenges with extremely limited support from the broad spectrum of philanthropic institutions. There is a dire need for small, unrestricted funds as sources of financial backing for projects led by Indigenous Peoples.


Fund History: PTM Foundation is an organization started and funded by Grammy Award winning band, Portugal. The Man. The group, based in Portland, Oregon, began their career in their home state of Alaska and have toured the globe playing to millions of people across six continents. Portugal The Man have been a Platinum-selling artist in 10 countries – and counting – and were recently honored with the Legend Award at the Native American Music Awards and the 2020 Public Sector Leadership Award by the National Congress of American Indians. This is the inaugural grant program for PTM Foundation.


Scope of Proposals Sought: PTM Foundation will consider proposals for projects that get out the Native vote, inspire Native people to run for student government, Tribal or public office, and help prepare Native people to advocate for issues of concern to Native people. This includes projects that present opportunities for public/private collaboration and that leverage community resources including financial, volunteer and in-kind contributions.

Nondiscrimination Policy of PTM Foundation: PTM Foundation does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, age, status as a veteran, national origin or any other protected class. Applicants must hold similar standards.


Eligibility of Projects: Projects must be located in the United States. Applicants must be Tribal Nations or organizations that are Native-led and tax-exempt/non-profit with determinations by the Internal Revenue Service of 501(c)(3) status, schools, or agencies of government.
