This article is the fifth in a series on Indigenous Communities and Philanthropy.

SUMMARY: Charity lawyer Richard Bridge shares the example of Ulnooweg, a dynamic and innovative First Nations non-profit that has provided financial services to Atlantic Canadian First Nations for decades. Its development of the charity Ulnooweg Financial Education Centre and success in attracting foundation funding to go national has helped Chiefs and Councils plan and meet community needs more effectively. It also shows the enormous benefits of First Nations securing qualified donee status.
