The Ma’mo’weh Wii’soo’ka’tiwin Foundation was established in May 2019 to support the work of the Kenora Chiefs Advisory, an alliance of nine independent First Nations within the Western Region of Treaty 3 Territory.
Since 1995, KCA has been delivering effective health, mental health, social service, education and wellbeing programs that touch the lives of over 4,200 community members every year.
90% of KCA’s annual budget comes from the provincial and federal governments. Much has been achieved with their generous support, but resources are limited, and funding is usually short-term and restricted to specific activities.
To go beyond standard programming and increase its impact, KCA needs independent, flexible and more diversified funding. The Ma’mo’weh Wii’soo’ka’tiwin Foundation is a bridge to private and corporate foundations and individual donors who embrace new ideas and new approaches to strengthening Indigenous communities.
