Arctic Indigenous Fund
The Arctic Indigenous Fund is a new fund being led by young Indigenous leaders from across the Arctic. It is a unique opportunity to decide how philanthropic funding should be distributed in ways that better support the needs of Northern communities and align with existing Indigenous-led efforts and leadership shaping the future of the North.
Indigenous-led philanthropy in the Arctic that is rooted in Indigenous cultures, traditions, and self-identified goals for the future.
Thriving Indigenous communities in the Arctic.
The values that will inform the way we work include:
Acknowledge our communities make decisions for themselves on their own terms;
Help one another, because we are strong together;
Embrace the healing power of lands and waters;
Treat each other and our partners with respect, patience, and kindness;
Carry out our responsibilities in a manner that is flexible, knowledgeable, transparent, accountable, and inclusive; and
Contribute to the strength of our communities, while maintaining a spirit of humility, humour, and generosity.
