The National Society for American Indian Elderly is funded through the generous support of Tribal memberships, individual donations, federal grants, resource generating activities and corporate product donations. Our organization would like to extend our appreciation for this support. All resources are directed to projects and activities at the grassroots level, we reach people where they live and help support the projects the Native communities, Tribes and tribal organizations have identified.

The NSAIE is currently working with member tribes to improve conditions and funding levels, in conjunction with AmeriCorps, providing personnel that help fill positions that work to increase grant dollars, improve service quality and expand services to a larger percentage of American Indian elderly.
