  • Application period now open for Oshki Wupoowane | The Blanket Fund

December 2023

The Hudson’s Bay Foundation and the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund announced that applications are now being accepted for the Oshki Wupoowane | The Blanket Fund. Through two grant streams, The Blanket Fund will provide support for Indigenous cultural, artistic, and educational activities. Grassroots Indigenous communities and organizations, and Indigenous individuals undertaking related initiatives, are eligible for the fund.

The Reconciliation Action grant stream (ranging from $1,500$15,000) will support community-level reconciliation activities, events, and initiatives that contribute to cultural revitalization; elevate Indigenous culture, languages, and traditions; increase understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples; or other grassroots initiatives that move reconciliation forward.

The Capacity Building grant stream (up to $175,000/year) will support grassroots Indigenous charities, programs, communities, and initiatives with the potential for significant impact. This grant stream commits to multi-year relationships, in an effort to increase the capacity, networks, programs, and profile of the partners selected. Applications for this stream will open in 2024.
