The Woodland Cultural Centre and the Save the Evidence campaign have had great success on Giving Tuesday thanks to the generous donors and repeat matching donors for 2021!
Did you know over 75 countries and 34.8 billion people participated in Giving Tuesday?
This year, Giving Tuesday will be Tuesday, November 30th, and Woodland Cultural Centre is hoping that you will consider supporting the work of the Centre. This year’s campaign is targeted to help support Phase 4 of the restoration of the Mohawk Institute Residential School site at Woodland Cultural Centre.
Phase 4 will cover the final work on the site which is one of the most important aspects. Phase 4 will be the installation of the exhibits and interpretative elements that will tell the stories of the Survivors and the history of the Mohawk Institute and the residential school system. This last phase will hopefully overlap with the final physical restorations, and if all goes well, will enable the site to open to the public in late fall 2024.
The Hamilton Community Foundation has been an invaluable partner throughout the Save the Evidence campaign offering support, advice and generous donations. Once again, in partnership with the Hamilton Community Foundation, the generous matching donor from our 2020 Giving Tuesday campaign has stepped up again!
The Woodland Cultural Centre is honoured and grateful to have the support of the Dufresne- Ray Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation, who for the second year in a row will match your donations for the day up to $5000.
The Save the Evidence is so close to realizing our goal for our final phase of the campaign. We hope that through Giving Tuesday our fundraising goal can be reached and the important work of the interpretation can begin. – Janis Monture, Executive Director
Many community supporters, schools and organizations are using the month of November to raise awareness and funds to double the impact of their donation by making it on November 30th. WCC encourages all fundraisers to contact email@example.com

Woodland Cultural Centre is excited to announce our partnership with Skateboard Project 2023!The Skateboard Project is an initiative that aims to promote Onkwehón:we artwork, active bodies, and collaboration between cultural centers across multiple Indigenous communities.In its second year, Kahnawà:ke, Kanehsatà:ke, Kenhtè:ke, Ahkwesáhsne and Six Nations came together to create seven skateboards graphics showcasing the range of styles and cultural imagery.Skateboard culture values inclusivity, individuality, creativity, and freedom and blending these with Indigenous traditions has created a project that connects communities through local art and skateboarding.Profits from the skateboard sales go towards compensation for the artist’s work and to help fund events related to June 21st (Go Skate Day/Indigenous Day/First Day of Summer).We hope to see more Indigenous communities being part of the project in the future!Woodland Cultural Centre is thrilled to participate in this fantastic community project. We will feature the seven skateboards from the participating artists in our online gift store and in the Stan Hill Gallery starting Saturday, February 18.
