The Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation is a national, award-winning Native-led nonprofit leading the way to improve Native American children’s health. Each day, thousands of Native youth wake up facing significant health challenges and barriers to living full lives. The good news is that most are preventable and together we are changing this reality.
NB3 Foundation is changing the lives of Native American children by supporting and funding Native-driven, culturally centered programs and by providing direct opportunities for Native youth to live healthy, active lives. We believe that success must be driven at the local level and focus on holistic prevention, including child, family and community. Our approach focuses on four core areas: healthy nutrition, physical activity, youth development and cultural connections. Together, these areas help provide youth with important protective factors that help them achieve their full potential. We remain committed to a vision that all children have the opportunity to live healthy, happy and fulfilled lives.
NB3 Foundation serves Native American youth and communities through three primary program areas:
1. NB3FIT (direct youth programming)
2. Community Empowerment (national grantmaking)
3. Evaluation and Research
