Racial Equity Fund
The Racial Equity Fund will catalyze direct support for equity-led or serving organizations focused on Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) populations. The Fund’s purpose will be to address the long-standing structural and systemic inequities within our community. This could include supporting racial equity initiatives that address the systematic impacts of colonization and evolve anti-racism and Indigenous-specific racism strategies.
