The Navajo Nation COVID-19 Response Donation Fund has been established to help the Navajo Nation respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and address immediate medical and community needs.
This is the Navajo Nation’s only official COVID-19 fundraising and donation effort. Visit Navajo Department of Health COVID-19 for updated information regarding Dikos Ntsaaígíí-19 (COVID-19) on the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo Nation began its phased re-opening plan on Monday, August 17. Learn more here: Navajo Nation Reopening Plan We appreciate your patience as we resume regular operations.
The Navajo Nation’s Health Command Center (HCC) established a Donation Branch to coordinate donations to the Nation. Attorney General Doreen N. McPaul serves as the Donation Branch Chief, and she tasked the Department of Justice to staff this effort and respond to donation inquiries. Email inquiries are preferred.
Navajo Nation Donation Branch
Monetary donations are coordinated with the Navajo Nation Office of the Controller. Non-monetary donations are coordinated with HCC’s Operations and Logistics Sections, depending on the donation type, quantity, and delivery date. All donations are documented on an ICS 213 form for FEMA reporting purposes and to ensure compliance with tribal law.
Gifts by check can be made payable to the Navajo Nation.
Please include “COVID-19 Response Donation” in the memo section of your check, and mail to:
Navajo Nation Office of the Controller P.O. Box 3150 Window Rock, AZ 86515
Monetary donations may also be made via GoFundMe:
In-kind donations of non-perishable food, personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies, and water are still needed for our communities. Email the Donation Branch at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
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. This is not intended to be tax advice and donors should contact a tax professional for advice.
A written acknowledgement of the donation will be provided upon request.
