Figurr Architects Launch Education Fund at Eenou-Eeyou Community Foundation

Figurr Architects Collective has launched the Figurr Architects Cree Education Fund in partnership with the Eeyou-Eenou Community Foundation. This fund establishes opportunities for educational success and empowerment of Indigenous youth in the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee. It provides financial assistance for resources and programs that will enable youth to pursue their academic and career goals and is aligned with the priorities put forward by Cree stakeholders.

Figurr Senior Partner Stephen Rotman explains: “The Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee is growing exponentially. This new education fund – launched in honour of Figurr’s 35th anniversary – marks a milestone for the Figurr team and is a testament to the trust and support we have established with the Cree communities in Northern Quebec over the last 10 years. We are deeply grateful for these relationships and are committed to furthering our shared goals. We believe that the Figurr Architects Cree Education Fund will encourage the development of innovative ideas that help Cree youth pursue careers that respond become the architects of resilient, thriving communities.”

During National Indigenous History Month in June, Figurr Architects Collective will match all donations, up to a total of $3,500!
