Our founder, Dr. Bob Crowell, started Eve’s Fund for Native American Health Initiatives in 2005 as a way to honor the memory of his daughter, Eve Erin Crowell. Since that time, we have developed a strong community presence and our programs have had a positive impact on nearly 50,000 Navajo children and teens.
Eve’s Fund programs are saving lives and bringing hope to children and teens living on and near the Navajo Nation. We teach injury prevention, promote literacy, and offer educational scholarships to these at-risk youth.
Injury Prevention – Our award-winning ThinkFirst Navajo program teaches Navajo youth how to avoid behaviors that can lead to disabling or fatal injuries; supplies safety helmets to at-risk youth.
Youth Literacy - Provides sets of Magic Tree House books to elementary schools on the Navajo Reservation to increase literacy and ignite passion for reading that can change children's lives for the better.
Scholarships - Provides educational scholarships for young Native high school students and students attending post-secondary vocational or technical programs.
Community Initiatives – Offers funding to local community organizations that share our vision and values.
