OUR GIVING BACK PARTNERS

Fredericton Homeless Shelters


The Fredericton Homeless Shelters Inc. was established in 1983 by a group of
people to provide temporary housing for people who suffered from house fires or
other natural disasters with a small mention of the transient population. Since that
time, they have changed dramatically to deal almost exclusively with those who
find themselves homeless not by natural disaster but by other circumstances.
Their mission is and to some extent has always been to restore human dignity to
those who were experiencing homelessness in Fredericton and the surrounding
areas. Since then, The Fredericton Homeless Shelters have expanded to three
shelters, the Men’s Shelter, Grace House for Women, and Brunswick Home
Transitional Housing. Together, the shelters provide temporary housing to over
300 individuals every year.

Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation

The Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation is a registered charity that helps strengthen the relationships between Canada’s philanthropic sector and the First Nations communities of Atlantic Canada. The connections between this vital sector and First Nations communities are not as strong as they should be. There is a need to build new relationships, understanding, co-operation and infrastructure for the sector and the communities to work together more constructively. The Foundation works to fill this gap and to pursue the enormous opportunities for impact donations, grants and investments.

FUNDRAISING PARTNERS

 We regularly run promotional campaigns in conjunction with our Artist Program

donated to a specific charity or not-for-profit organization.

Here’s a quick look at some of the organizations we’ve supported in this manner:

MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning

whale in particular. To learn more or donate directly,
