Our Impact, Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation

Building Brighter Futures

Since 2004 we have made a huge impact in the lives of many of our applicants and their communities. Today, we are one of Canada’s leading Aboriginal charitable foundations, dedicated to providing talented, passionate and energetic youth and individuals the support they need today, to become tomorrow’s community leaders. We also provide grants to many community-involvement projects across Ontario that have lasting, positive effects for their citizens and allow for the continued engagement of youth in activities that help shape them into future thinkers, leaders, doers and believers.
