Mission: National Relief Charities is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit committed to championing hope for a brighter future for Native Americans living on remote, isolated and impoverished reservations. NRC maintains relations with more than 1,000 reservation partners focused on leading positive change within their tribal communities. A BBB-accredited charity, our mission is: Serving immediate needs. Supporting long-term solutions. Our vision is: Strong, self-sufficient Native American communities.
Results: NRC is known among our reservation partners as a solid, steady resource that provides the right goods – the requested goods – in the right time and right way for tribal communities. We achieve 96% customer satisfaction, providing aid to areas most organizations cannot reach. In addition to delivering essential goods and services, NRC is developing community leaders who can drive social change in their reservation communities. We are also challenging dependency and poverty by involving community members in the delivery of our services--simultaneously enhancing capacity while meeting diverse needs. Each year, 90-95% of our scholarship students complete the college year, and hundreds of thousands of Native Americans welcome relief from day-to-day symptoms of poverty. Our annual report, effectiveness report, partner and participant stories, and press coverage are published on our website at Our Charting Impact report is available at Our BBB report is available at
Target demographics: NRC provides consistent aid and services for Native Americans with the highest needs in the U.S.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Collaborating with our reservation partners, we improve quality of life for 250,000 Native Americans each year—and yet there is more to do.
Geographic areas served: NRC’s scholarships are offered nationwide to tribally-enrolled Native Americans students. Our long-term solutions and our material goods and services for immediate relief span 60 reservations throughout the Southwest and Northern Plains regions of the U.S.
Programs: NRC cares about quality of life and supports the self-determined goals of the tribes. Our programs (AIEF, ROAR, CIN, AIRC, SNRF, NAA, SWIRC and NRF) span education, animal welfare and Northern Plains and Southwest reservation aid. Specifically, our material services focus on nutrition, health, K-12 education, emergency relief, animal welfare, and holiday needs being addressed by our reservation partners within their tribal communities. Our long-term solutions support higher education, community investment projects, and capacity-building for local leaders and reservation communities. NRC connects outside resources directly to the reservations through our distribution network and reservation partnerships.

I find this service is very professional, well organized and assisting in all coordinated fields on their service area. What ever needs were requested was obtained and provided, never had any trouble or difficutly with request, shipments and service. When we brought volunteers to the center it was organized, welcoming and very helpful for clients that needed items for their hours of service. Love the service and I would recommend it anytime for the areas.

It was also terrific that you were able to bring a group of volunteers to work in our distribution center in Rapid City, SD. Thanks again for sharing your feedback online for the benefit of other partners as well as donors.
