About this organization
NAAF was founded to assist and promote research-based, community-driven, sustainable development throughout the Tohono O'odham Nation.
NAAF’s Board President Susan Warmack was born in GuVo District and grew up living on the Tohono O’odham Nation. In 2010, her nine-year-old son David, recognizing a need for literacy in his village, challenged his mother to help him organize a program to assist the community. As a young child, David enjoyed visiting his mother’s childhood home in the village of GuVo and learning about his heritage from his grandmother in her native language. Realizing that the children in his village had access to very few books, David was inspired to develop a way to share his love of learning with his community. With the involvement and support of the people of GuVo, and the counsel of Dr. Tim Finan from The University of Arizona, David and Susan incorporated the Native American Advancement Foundation as a nonprofit organization in April of 2011 and obtained 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status on September 19, 2011.
