On September 30th, Weaving Roots Foundation will honour the children’s families and communities affected by the residential school system. We will remember and honour those who did not return home. Our board members had an “orange shirt” board meeting and spent time reflecting on what Truth and Reconciliation means to them

This year, not one but two golf tournaments were held to raise funds for the Weaving Roots Foundation! The first took place in Edmonton on June 16th at the Cougar Creek Golf Resort, and the second took place in Fort McMurray (our first tournament in Fort McMurray!) on August 24th at the Fort McMurray Golf Club. Both events were incredibly successful, raising much needed funds for Weaving Roots Foundation, in order to support essential services and programs.

We are thrilled to announce that Weaving Roots Foundation has successfully transitioned from a Not-For-Profit organization under the Corporations Act to a Registered Charity under the Charities Act. Our application through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has been approved, marking a significant milestone in our journey.

A New Chapter Begins

This transition is not merely a change in our legal status; it signifies a new chapter in our foundation’s story. With our new charity registration, we can further expand our fundraising capabilities, provide tax receipts to our generous donors, and deepen our impact in the communities we serve.

Gratitude and Looking Ahead

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who supported us throughout this transformative process. To our dedicated team, passionate volunteers, and our community of supporters – your unwavering faith in our mission has been the driving force behind this achievement.

With our new status as a Registered Charity, we look forward to exploring new opportunities, forging stronger partnerships, and bringing our vision to even greater heights. The work we’ve been able to accomplish as a Not-For-Profit has laid a strong foundation. Now, as a charity, we aim to weave an even more intricate and resilient web of support, kindness, and change.
