UPDATE JUNE 2021
We are temporarily halting the fundraiser as we re-organize the way we manage our resources. Please contribute directly to the groups on our directly to keep the support flowing!
We will be re-initiating our fundraiser here soon so please stay posted.
While we recognize that there are a lot of crowdfunding campaigns for Indigenous relief funds, we thought it necessary to establish this emergency fund specifically for radical Indigenous Mutual Aid projects and individuals.
We don’t want to see endless fundraisers and non-profit industrial cooptation get in the way of necessary work on the ground. We want to ensure critical resources get directly into the hands of anti-capitalist and anti-colonial organizers that either may not have access to those sources or don’t want to engage with them. No strings or branding attached here. We won’t ask recipients to send us pictures to share with funders.
Donations will be allocated as quickly as possible. Decisions will be made for funding based on resources available and critical needs.
If you don’t want to use the form to donate please paypal to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please put a note that it is for the “Indigenous Mutual Aid Emergency Fund” if you do not use the form below.
We are anti-profit, all proceeds will go to resources for the network and the emergency fund.
Ahe’ hee’ nitsaago! Thank you so much to everyone who has
contributed! Our initial goal of $10k was quickly surpassed. We extended
the fundraiser to $120k based upon the need and critical support we
have been providing for radical Indigenous mutual aid groups.
