About Daisee Francour:
Daisee Francour (Oneida), Director of Strategic Partnerships and Communications, comes to Cultural Survival with over a decade of experience working in philanthropy, at non-profit organizations, in grassroots organizing, and as a direct service provider in education, mental health, corrections, serving Indigenous Peoples with disabilities/special needs, domestic violence victims, the homeless, and formerly incarcerated inmates. Her experience has deepened her advocacy and movement-building work as a radical woman in philanthropy.
As a former program officer at the Christensen Fund, she managed the San Francisco Bay Area program and supported her colleagues with other global regional programs at the fund. Later, she transitioned into consulting as a strategist, resource mobilizer, organizational development consultant, and philanthropic advisor supporting Indigenous organizations locally and globally.
Her work centers to empower Tribes, Native Nations, as well as Indigenous-led institutions to build their capacity, leadership, organizational infrastructure, and develop holistic strategies to support their resource generation and organizational sustainability. As an Indigenous fundraiser, philanthropic advisor, and donor educator, Daisee strives to build the capacity of philanthropy, foundations, and individual donors by transforming their understanding of Indigenous rights, Indigenous issues, biocultural diversity, climate and social justice as well as other regenerative systems.
