OUR COMMUNITY SERVICES
WE PRIORITIZE DIRECT SERVICE AND SUPPORT TO COMMUNITY.
Our Community Services focus on providing skills and capacity building opportunities that are publicly accessible. Live engagements are facilitated by our Services Team, and are sometimes delivered in partnership with other organizations. We'll often hold these opportunities as donation-collective events, with donations being invested in the Future Ancestors Services Waashayshkwun Grant Fund and grassroots initiatives.
We also host the Future Ancestors Collective portal, which houses our recordings, articles, and a curated list of resources for further learning.

THE WAASHAYSHKWUN GRANT FUND
OUR GRANT FUND SUPPORTS DIVERSE INDEPENDENT SERVICES PROVIDERS.
The Waashayshkwun Grants are awarded to Indigenous, Black, racialized, LGBTQ2S+, and disabled independent service providers based in what is now known as Canada. Despite facing disproportionate barriers, they continue to centre climate justice and systemic barrier removal in their education, lives, and services. These grants are intended to provide the recipients with financial relief and with the opportunity to invest in their business development.
'Waashayshkwun' means 'the sky is clear' in Michif-Cree. By distributing grants for financial relief and business development to independent service provide, we aim to clear their skies as they're clearing Mother Earth's. Learn how to say 'waashayshkwun' with proper pronunciation here .
WE SUPPORT GRASSROOTS INITIATIVES AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT DECOLONIZE, INDIGENIZE, AND BUILD SOLIDARITY.
These are some of the initiatives and organizations we've supported through donation-collecting events, direct donations from our profits, and through pro-bono services. If you're interested in partnering with us, please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly believe in transparency, especially when it comes to your donation dollars. Click on any logo to access the Donation Expenditure Report for full details of how donations were collected and where they went.
