The Hearth

The Hearth is a community of givers who are making an equitable and just Indigenous future a part of their lasting legacy. By planning a future gift to The Woape Foundation, members of The Hearth help ensure that our work will continue until every Native person in the Americas sees their sovereignty and dignity restored and respected—in a sustainable and empowered way.

Joining The Hearth is one of the most powerful actions you can take to help end centuries of cultural genocide against Native peoples and build an Indigenous future for all. A legacy commitment is an investment in transparent, sustainable work that will directly impact some of the world’s most vulnerable populations and transform the future for generations to come.
