The Calgary Foundation has generously granted funding for the Initiative and Indigenous Community leader Tim Fox, who is the Calgary Foundation's Director of Indigenous Relations, also sits on the Indigenous Education for Newcomers Advisory Committee. Watch below as he talks about both his work with the Foundation and the Committee, as well as his vision for reconciliation in Canada.
Since 1955, the Calgary Foundation has been nurturing a healthy, vibrant, giving and caring community. The Foundation facilitates collaborative philanthropy by making powerful connections between donors and community organizations for the long-term benefit of Calgary and area.
