Thank you to everyone who participated in the #GivingChallengeCA in June. The community support was overwhelming.
Congratulations to “Sistering A-Woman’s Place” who were the winners of the Great Canadian Giving Challenge $20,000 prize.
Even though we did not win this year, with your support, donations and shares we were able to raise MORE than that prize value in just one month. Watch this quick Thank you video and see how much we were able to raise in June.
The funds raised in June will be used to document Residential School Survivor Stories and travel to surround communities to gather them. Keeping this oral tradition and learning directly from those who experienced it, is vital to the Save the Evidence campaign. The month was a huge success, yet we still have a long way to go to complete Phase 3 of the project.
We hope to have your continued support this year to Save the Evidence and preserve the Mohawk Institute Residential School. All donations of $100+ will be acknowledged on our Supporters Page of our website. This is updated weekly, so if you don’t see your name there don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
