Our Give to the Max Day 2023 theme is “Where’s Wayne: A Marvelous Meeting of Relatives.” We’re putting an Indigenous twist on Where’s Waldo and hosting a whirlwind tour showcasing Indigenous innovation!

Each day, we’ll feature new examples of sovereignty in action and ask our audience to test their knowledge by guessing where we are. We’ve set our executive director, Wayne, up with a full Waldo outfit. We’re sending him off to various locations around our region. And we have some Waldo lookalikes lined up as well. Follow us on social media to learn about Indigenous leadership during the month of November!

The funds we raise during GTMD are crucial for sustaining our work with grassroots Indigenous leaders. For example, we recently finished recruiting applicants for our next cohort of Native Nation Rebuilders. Our applicant pool is the largest and most diverse we’ve seen in years. We’re about to launch a new Tribal Civics cohort and begin action planning workshops with nations participating in our Indigenous Leaders in Governance program. NGC recently won the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits’ Mission Award for Anti-Racism Initiative. And, our new episode of Wings with Wayne featuring Dallas Goldtooth is approaching 100,000 views.

Can we count on you to help us meet our goal of $35,000? Donate here from 11/1/2023-11/16/2023. Reach out to if you’re interested in making a matching gift, serving as a social media ambassador, or hosting your own mini digital fundraiser to support our campaign.
