OUR MISSION: Through a variety of collaborative and multicultural projects, we strive to alleviate conditions of poverty, honor Indigenous wisdom, reconcile our shared history with the Peoples of the First Nations and empower youth with the leadership skills needed to affect social change in their communities.
Did you know that the majority of Tipi Raisers funding comes from individual donations and grants? As we move further into alignment with the Indigenous wisdom of reciprocity and gift economies, we have shifted to free open volunteer groups and assessing only nominal fees for customized volunteer groups. We believe that those who join us on our mission receive the gift that is inherent in that experience and that they will give back to the best of their ability - in this way, we can all stay in balance.
"Gifts exist in the realm of humility and mystery—as with random acts of kindness, we do not know their source." From Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
We offer our sincere gratitude for any support you can offer. Please contact Lori@thetipiraisers.org for ways to get involved.
