Frontera is Turning Five Years Old!
To celebrate our success and recognize the support we've received from BC communities since 2018, we are on a fundraising mission to donate $5000 to charitable causes.
We've chosen two important charities, with the aim of donating $2500 to each:
In order to meet our goal, we're looking to our closest friends, family and colleagues for help.
Here's How to Help
We've partnered with each charity to create custom donation links. For every dollar donated by friends and family, Frontera will double your contribution up to a total campaign donation of $5,000 ($2500 to each charity).
Indian Residential School Survivors Society
At Frontera, we support reconciliation efforts and believe meaningful reconciliation starts with healing. Our anniversary celebration is being held near this year's National Day of Truth and Reconciliation (September 30, 2023). To recognize this new holiday, we would like to again support the IRSSS.
We chose the IRSSS because this non-profit supports an array of direct reconciliation efforts towards healing BC First Nations people. Donations go to fund the following IRSSS services:
Trauma-informed cultural support
Support for families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls
Support for people impacted by Indian Day Schools and Indian Day Scholars
QWUM QWUM XWII XWAAQQXX Youth Justice Program
Presentations and workshops
United for BC Wildfire Recovery Fund
We chose the United for BC Wildfire Recovery Fund (United Way Canada) for the obvious reason that this year's wildfires have been very hard on British Columbia's communities – in particular the Fort St. John area, the Shushwap, West Kelowna and Gold Bridge, to name a few.
These are communities we serve and who have supported us over the years and we feel it is important to give back. By donating to the United for BC Wildfire Recovery Fund you support:
Emergency support (rapid response and supplies to communities)
Direct community-specific grants
Pop-up camps for kids
Long-term recovery (mental health, children support services, insurance, social services).
