The Navajo Nation COVID-19 Fund has been established to help the Navajo Nation respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the Navajo Nation’s only official COVID-19 fundraising and donation effort.

The Navajo Nation is accepting monetary and non-monetary donations to address immediate medical and community needs. Charitable donations to the Navajo Nation are deductible by the donor for federal income, estate, and gift tax purposes

The Navajo Nation’s Health Command Center has established a Donation Branch to coordinate donations to the Nation. Attorney General Doreen N. McPaul serves as the Donation Branch Chief, and she has tasked the Department of Justice to staff this effort and respond to donation inquiries. Monetary donations are coordinated with the Navajo Nation Office of the Controller and non-monetary donations are coordinated with the Health Command Center’s Operations and Logistics Sections, depending on the type of donation, quantity, and delivery date.

All donations are documented on an ICS 213 form for FEMA reporting purposes and to ensure compliance with tribal law.

Charitable donations to the Navajo Nation are deductible by the donor for federal income, estate, and gift tax purposes. Because the Navajo Nation is a government unit, it is a qualifying entity under Section 7871(a) of the Internal Revenue Service Code for purposes of receiving public or charitable distributions. The Nation has written IRS guidance to this effect. A written acknowledgement of the donation will be provided upon request. This is not intended to be tax advice and donors should contact a tax professional for advice.
