Edmonton Community Papaschase Endowment Fund

The Edmonton Community Papaschase Endowment Fund was established by Eric Rice and family in support of Papaschase First Nation. The intent and purpose of the fund is to:

  • provide, support or encourage programs that enhance community development, social development, or cultural advocacy and resilience for Edmonton urban Indigenous communities so as to build strong, engaged communities; and/or
  • fund educational and training projects specifically targeted and designed for Edmonton urban Indigenous communities to enhance the employability or entrepreneurial skills of their members so as to enhance the quality of life for Indigenous people resident in the greater Edmonton area.

Each year, Edmonton Community Foundation and Papaschase First Nation will work together to make strategic and impactful granting decisions that best carry out the fund’s intentions.
