It’s now easier than ever to give to Indigenous-led charities through the recently launched Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Fund by CanadaHelps. This Fund stands in solidarity by highlighting Indigenous-led charities and qualified donees to share the transformational work done daily. Whether it is equal access to healthcare, education, mental health, and clean water, or services founded in Indigenous knowledge, culture, and language.
Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Fund by CanadaHelps
Developed in partnership with Wanda Brascoupé, an Indigenous philanthropic leader, this Fund supports 40 Indigenous-led charities that bring first-hand experience to help shift community outcomes.
To help your gift go even further, donations up to $25 will be MATCHED to support the Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Fund. Plus, your donation will be pooled with others to have an even greater impact.
Indigenous Peoples represent nearly 5% of the Canadian population, and they are the fastest-growing population in Canada. Indigenous-led organizations are critical to the communities they serve, and they are leading the way with solutions to long-standing challenges.
These solutions include a focus on physical and emotional healing from the traumas of colonialism; rebuilding traditional culture, language, and intergenerational transfer of knowledge that was lost or damaged through government-led assimilation practices; offering services or supports founded in Indigenous knowledge and practices in communities and in urban settings; and uplifting an emerging generation of leaders through a resurgence of culture and sustainable relationships with their lands and waters.
You can view the latest list of charities included in the fun here, including Haida Gwaii Museum Society, Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund, and many more.
Stand with Indigenous Peoples by supporting Indigenous-led ingenuity and providing funding directly to Indigenous communities and the people they support.
