We are asking friends to become Founding Donors

Dogindh! Pilamayaye! Wopila! Thanks to several generous foundations and government agencies, we are continuing to grow and fulfill 2023 project plans.


We are continuing habitat restoration and organic farming internships thanks to funding from USDA Rural Business Development Grant Program, Meyer Memorial Trust and The Collins Foundation. Training will continue to be provided each fall and spring in partnership with Chemeketa Community College, thanks to a five-year grant from the US Department of Agriculture.


We are inviting our Native community, other friends and donors to support us in this important work. Will you help us? Elderberry Wisdom Farm is inviting new Founding Donors to support us by making automatic monthly contributions.


If you are able to help as a one-time or end-of-year donor, or as a sustaining donor, it will help us to accomplish our projects of serving our cohorts of Native American and Indigenous interns. Your monthly $20 donation would provide us with secure funding totaling $240. Twenty Founding Donors would provide us with $4,800 which funds two additional Native interns participating in our Habitat Restoration internship or our organic farming internship.

Benefits to you are intrinsic in multiple ways. It will reward our Interns with a more promising future. It will also produce rewards to Elderberry Wisdom Farm in the coming years as we continue to grow and expand to serve unrepresented low-income Native American, Alaskan Native, Hawaiian and Pacific Islander relatives who will also benefit from your support.  

The Destiny of Native American Youth

Today’s Native American youth are preparing to accomplish tomorrow’s Climate Adaptation and Mitigation work.

Perhaps this is why Elderberry Wisdom Farm has been actively sharing Messages of Hope for Native American Youth and Families. Today's Native American youth represent our future. They are tomorrow’s history keepers, living museums, community leaders, healers, and spiritual leaders.


We have expanded in 2023 and are now holding our internships for our Native community each season in 2023 instead of twice a year in the fall and spring. Our Habitat Restoration Internship is being provided during the summer, fall and winter terms, and our Organic Farming Internships will be held each spring and summer for the next three years.


Formed in 2019, Elderberry Wisdom Farm is young, but we are mighty with the support of our diverse Board of Directors and team of staff and consultants who are continuing to expand. Trusted colleagues committed to our vision and mission have formed collaborative partnerships with our organization. Our funders have enthusiastically stepped up to help and we are now turning to our followers for assistance
