How much do you know about the philanthropic scene in Canada’s North?
If you’re like many Canadians, not much. But local initiatives that build meaningful, reciprocal relationships with communities are changing the philanthropic landscape in the North — and there are valuable insights the rest of us can learn from their work.
We are excited to announce that we’re crafting a special content series with Community Foundations of Canada over the next few months to dive into some of the innovations and local leadership shaping the Arctic’s philanthropy scene. Community Foundations of Canada has supported space for an exciting locally-driven constellation of Arctic community philanthropy initiatives, each one unique, locally-led, and redefining philanthropy’s role in building relationships with the communities it serves. We’re thrilled to have Community Foundations of Canada as a partner, to help us amplify and elevate some of the innovative, impactful, community lead, grass roots Northern initiatives that have — and continue to — enhance lives.
Stay tuned for our first story in the lead up to International Women’s Day about community inspired initiatives from the Kitikmeot Heritage Society, led by (Nunavummiut) women in Cambridge Bay, dedicated to the preservation of Inuit culture.
