We invite our community to support Survivors and honour the many children who never made it home to their families. At the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, we are dedicated to uncovering and preserving the truths of what happened at residential schools and giving strength to the voices of those affected and those who were lost.

To show your support, gifts can be made directly to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation or to one of the three NCTR funds listed below.

  • A group of Indigenous children at a residential school.
  • Na-mi-quai-ni-mak (I remember them) community support fund

    There is a national and urgent need to help communities acknowledge the children that never made it home. Your gift to the Na-mi-quai-ni-mak (I remember them) community support fund helps support small community-based projects that further healing and remembrance related to residential schools in Canada. These funds support Indigenous communities, Survivor Organizations, registered non-profits and others with small grants for memorial activities.

    Communities and Residential School Survivors know what activities best support healing, memorials and remembrance in their communities. When you make a gift to the community support fund you help build on previous efforts to recognize the lasting impact of residential schools on Indigenous communities.

  • Truth and Reconciliation Week fund

    In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission published 94 calls to action. Residential School Survivors continue to stress the need to share the history of Residential Schools and stories of truth and reconciliation in Canada’s education curriculum.

    Truth and Reconciliation Week (September 25-30): Reconciliation starts with education and learning and commemorating the truth of our history from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit knowledge keepers is an important part on the path of reconciliation. Your donation supports week long, daily educational programming that is free and open to all schools across Canada, that supports education curriculums, is age appropriate and free to grades K–12. Students learn directly from residential school Survivors, Indigenous artists, athletes, and other subject matter experts about topics including the gifts Indigenous Peoples bring to the world, language, culture, the history of residential schools, and how learners and educators can take action towards reconciliation.

  • Imagine a Canada

    The Imagine a Canada program asks Canadian youth from K-G12 and CÉGEP to envision a Canada reconciled. Students who participate in the K-G5 stream are asked to submit an art piece, essay, or other representation which expresses their vision of a reconciled Canada. Students in the G6-G12 and CÉGEP stream are asked to go one step further and submit a plan and budget for their vision that addresses reconciliation in their community or school.

    Twelve projects from the K-G5 stream and 15 projects from G6-G12 and CÉGEP stream will be selected and honoured in a national ceremony. With support from donors like you, the students responsible for these projects will have the opportunity to participate in online leadership training exercises. Your gifts will also support students with selected projects from the G6-G12 and CÉGEP stream who will receive a micro-grant to turn their vision of a reconciled Canada into a reality.
