Gord Downie Chanie Wenjac Fund
GORD ASKED THE NATION TO LOOK NORTH. “DO SOMETHING,” HE SAID.
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund is part of Gord Downie’s legacy and embodies his commitment, and that of his family, to improving the lives of First Peoples. The Fund operates out of the Toronto Foundation.
The Fund is focused on cross-cultural education to support healing and recovery. We need to better understand each other before we can truly reconcile. The Fund will foster new relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples, while strengthening the voices and work of groups already making a difference.
Proceeds from the Courage For Gord fundraising effort will be donated to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund.
