We will take a leadership role in closing the gap between the philanthropic sector and Indigenous Communities.

As chiefs and leaders of our communities, it is our mission to:

  •  Work with and support Atlantic Indigenous communities to achieve their philanthropic plans and goals;
  • Create and manage new endowment funds, including specific donor advised, donor directed, field of interest and scholarship funds;
  • Identify and pursue impact investment opportunities with other Foundations and potential investors that will achieve community benefit and development;
  • Take a leadership role in strengthening the relations between the philanthropic sector and Indigenous communities in the Atlantic region and across Canada; and
  • Increase public understanding of the opportunities for First Nations and philanthropy.
