The intent of the Funders’ Domain is to promote community support and awareness of resource opportunities and barriers as they relate to programs and services for Aboriginal people.
The objective of the Funders Domain is to provide funding to community investments that address the high priority needs identified by the Domains and the Domain Planning Group.
Role in the Collaborative Granting Process (CGP)
The Funders Domain seeks to:
- Increase the funding available to the CGP by locating matching funds from government, corporate partners and philanthropic organizations;
- Maximize flexibility in its members’ internal process requirements so as to reduce the complexity of the funding process and support funding partnerships;
- Preferentially review projects that have been identified as high priorities by the Domain Planning Group;
- Assist proponents whose applications to the CGP have been tentatively approved for funding to complete the required funder-specific applications; and
- After each cycle of the CGP is complete, the Funders Domain issues a report on its decisions to the CUAI Committee. The report identifies the projects that have been funded and the amounts and sources of the total funding allocated.
Funders Domain Executive
The Funders Domain appoints a Chair and Co-Chair to conduct meetings and provide a liaison function to the CUAI Committee.
The Funders Domain membership includes government, foundations, corporate partners and philanthropic organizations. The Funders work collaboratively with the urban Aboriginal community and with each other to invest in community-identified and prioritized projects that build on community strengths, address high priority needs and/or fill gaps in service.
