Notah Begay III is one of New Mexico’s most prominent athletes, taking his golfing skills from Albuquerque Academy, to Stanford University and eventually the PGA.
And in 2005, Begay III established the Notah Begay III Foundation, a non-profit that aims to provide health and wellness education to Native American youth in hopes of helping them live healthy, happy and fulfilled lives.
The Foundation is celebrating an important “giving” milestone.
Since starting its grant-making program, the NB3 Foundation has provided $4.08 million through 117 grants to Native-led nonprofits and tribal nations in 15 states (AK, AZ, CA, HI, KS, MN, MT,ND, NM, NY, OK, OR, SD, WA, WI).
The NB3 Foundation has raised every penny through the generosity and partnership of tribal nations, donors, sponsors, and philanthropic foundations.
During these four years, the Foundation has not accepted or received any government funding.
NB3 Foundation‘s grant-making supports community-driven efforts to improve the health and fitness of Native youth through various health prevention strategies.
