NICOA advocates for improved comprehensive health, social services and economic well-being for American Indian and Alaska Native elders. All donations made to NICOA are tax deductible, per IRS.
The people who support us make our work possible. Annual reports and financial reports give us the opportunity to report on our recent achievements. But the work we do far exceeds the capacity of these reports to tell our story.
NICOA is committed to operating with transparency and sharing the meaningful impact of our work with supporters and the public. NICOA was awarded the goal seal of transparency from GuideStar in 2022.
