The Native Fund® is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that views itself simply as "Iowans helping Iowans®". The Native Fund was founded by Iowa natives Ashton Kutcher and Dallas Clark and is committed to raising funds and organizing volunteer efforts to assist the people and communities of Iowa in times of need. Specifically, The Native Fund provides assistance and relief to Iowa communities recovering from a natural disaster, while also endeavoring to improve access to quality healthcare and other resources for Iowa children afflicted with a life-threatening illness and Iowa's post-9/11 veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
Simply put, when a natural disaster strikes an Iowa community or when The Native Fund's intended beneficiaries are otherwise in need, The Native Fund exists to help fill existing gaps and improve the lives of those affected.
