The Eenou-Eeyou Community Foundation (Cree Foundation) is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to the health, social development and prosperity of the 20,000 Crees who live in ten communities spread across a territory of 400,000 square kilometers in the James Bay region. Cree communities have shown incredible resilience over the centuries. Today, the Eenou-Eeyou communities manage their own education and health care systems and deliver culturally appropriate essential services across Eeyou Istchee.
The Eenou-Eeyou Community Foundation is dedicated to building partnerships with business, foundation and government sectors, while defining philanthropy with a lens that takes Cree values and traditions into account. It has recently launched a $40 million inaugural fundraising campaign to finance a strong future for Cree children and youth by preserving and promoting the Cree culture and traditions, and developing healthy, strong and prosperous Cree communities.
The Foundation will engage and inspire, helping to bring transformational improvements in housing, education, and health care, bringing greater prosperity and vitality to the people. Power Corporation is pleased to support the Foundation’s breakthrough projects focused on youth.
