The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) is part of Gord Downie’s legacy and embodies his commitment, and that of both the Downie and Wenjack families, to call Canadians to learning and action in solidarity with Indigenous peoples of this land. The goals of the fund are to continue the conversation that began with Chanie Wenjack’s residential school story and to support the reconciliation process through awareness, education and action.
Proceeds from Familyband events will support the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund.
To date, Familyband has donated $23,861.18, which has contributed to various reconciliACTION efforts across the country.
