Request for Expressions of Interest Advisors for a New Arctic Indigenous Fund
The Arctic Funders Collaborative (AFC), in partnership with the Tamalpais Trust and Tides Canada Foundations, invite Expressions of Interest from next generation Indigenous leaders to serve as Advisors. These Advisors will design and lead the new Arctic Indigenous Fund. Expressions of Interest are invited from next generation Indigenous leaders from across the circumpolar Arctic and sub-Arctic, including Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland, and Sapmi.
The goal of the new Arctic Indigenous Fund is to empower next generation Indigenous Northern leaders to exercise authority over philanthropic funding. Advisors will decide how these philanthropic resources can be distributed in ways that better support the needs of Northern communities and align with existing Indigenous-led efforts and leadership.
The Advisor positions will require:
- A commitment of a two-year term as a fund advisor;
- Ability to travel annually, including a three-day meeting in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in March 2018;
- Availability for periodic conference calls and document review; and
- Comfort with being a point of contact for communities in their region.
Interested individuals must submit a one-page Expression of Interest, or a three-minute video, outlining their vision for the North and their sense of responsibility to contribute to their community.
Expressions of Interest must be submitted to: director [at] arcticfunders.com
Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest: Friday, 19 January 2018.
