(Brantford/Six Nations)- Woodland Cultural Centre is excited to announce they are participating in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge in the hopes of winning the grand prize of $20,000 for the development of new curriculum-based outreach education programs. Funds raised will go to support schools in Six Nations of the Grand River, Wahta Mohawks, and Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte communities, as well as, school boards, and Universities and Colleges.

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge happens every June and is a month-long fundraising initiative to bring awareness and support to charities. Every dollar donated to WCC in June, via CanadaHelps.org or CanadaHelps fundraising tools, is an entry for a chance to win $20,000.

The Woodland Cultural Centre education department fearlessly took on the challenge to establish virtual education programs during a time when the world shut down and moved to an online reality. They have been diligently working on creating and implementing the highest quality programs to school aged groups and other organizations. Help us to continue to develop new and exciting programming related to Indigenous cultures, languages, stories, and the impacts of the residential school system.

“One of the Woodland Cultural Centre’s strategic priorities is to advance life-long learning initiatives to continue the dialogue and understanding of Hodinohsho:ni culture, language, history and the arts.  The donations raised during the Great Canadian Giving Challenge will assist Woodland in developing more education programming that is integral to deepening the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.” – Janis Monture, Executive Director.

Woodland Cultural Centre is honoured and grateful to announce the support of an anonymous matching donor, who will match the first $5,000 of your donations.

This June, the Woodland Cultural Centre staff are thrilled to offer the chance for a classroom to win a free virtual tour or workshop! Every $1 donated to the Woodland Cultural Centre Great Canadian Giving Challenge donation page, is an entry to win a virtual experience for a classroom from K-University/College. Enter to win this amazing opportunity for your classroom or to nominate a classroom you know.
