The mission of the NIB Trust Fund is to provide resourcing that creates meaningful opportunities that improve the quality of life for First Nations and Métis people.
Support for the NIB Trust Fund helps First Nations and Métis people and communities address the impacts from the Indian Residential Schools System and supports beneficiaries to reconnect to culture and language and pursue post-secondary education. Donations can help individual beneficiaries work towards their personal educational goals with financial assistance in the form of bursaries, scholarships, and awards that can help lessen the financial burden faced by many students. Individual beneficiaries are also Residential School Survivors, like Reggie Neeposh.
At Coyote Pride, they believe that mentoring preserves a way of life based on spirituality, sacredness, reciprocity, education, and social responsibility. With the integration of cultural pride, it preserves and protects the health and well-being of the youth. Through these mentoring sessions youth received the opportunity to learn different tribal regions, language lessons in Cree, and storytelling/legends within eight (8) different schools in the Edmonton region.
Your support for the NIB Trust Fund directly supports our beneficiaries and help invest in building stronger First Nations and Métis people and communities.
