Why Sponsor The Gathering?

We are thrilled to announce our upcoming flagship event, The Gathering 2024, scheduled to take place on October 10th, 2024 at the Leftbank Annex in Portland, Oregon. This gala is not only a celebration of the rich cultural heritage and economic potential within Native communities but also a pivotal platform for promoting sustainable development and systemic change.

Each element of the event is designed to honor the rich cultural tapestry of Native communities while championing the benefits of rebuilding a more equitable economy for all of our community members.
