Nike N7 Fund seeks applications to fund Native youth programs

 


The N7 Fund is expanding grant opportunities to Native youth.

The organization, a non-profit arm of Nike, has already been funding health, wellness and sports programs in Indian Country. Through a partnership with the Center for Native American Youth, young Native Americans will be able to secure money for their own initiatives as well.

“N7 has allocated resources for Native youth as a part of N7’s commitment to Gen-I," Sam McCracken, a long-time Nike employee who serves as chairman of the N7 Fund, said in a press release. "We created this opportunity in partnership with the Center for Native American Youth to bring sport and all of its benefits to Gen-I and to create further opportunities for future generations.”
