Since our launch in 2007, The Roundtable team has given back to our community through a variety of corporate donations, pro bono services and reduced program rates for leaders in the charitable sector. We believe that the ability to learn is one of the most powerful skills in the world, because it intrinsically changes who we are as people, and deepens how we understand one another and our impact on the world.
As we move into the next chapter of our growth, our team wanted to focus our energies so that we can increase the impact of our community work. We wanted to find a charitable partner whose values and mission aligned to our own and where we could continue our work in supporting leaders who want to make a greater impact.
We are thrilled to share that beginning now, in January 2022, The Roundtable will be embarking on a multi-year partnership with Indspire through their Building Brighter Futures initiative.
The Roundtable bursary program will provide financial assistance to Indigenous youth in Canada pursuing higher education in the field of business or leadership. The partnership represents a $25,000 commitment over five years.
To maximize our impact and support as many students as we can, we would like to invite you to help us expand our impact. The Roundtable has grown over the years through repeat business and referrals. Beginning in January 2022, we will be donating 1% of all referral sales towards supporting as many students as we can with Indspire. If you know someone who would benefit from the work we do, please reach out and let us know.
The Roundtable’s commitment to Indspire will help transform indigenous education and support First Nation, Inuit and Métis youth across Canada as they pursue post-secondary education. Our clients often tell us that our programs have been transformational to their leadership journeys. This is our opportunity, as a community, to transform the lives of Indigenous youth, together.
Take a look at one of the many success stories and you’ll see why we are so excited about this new initiative.
Indspire serves First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students in remote communities, rural areas and urban centres across Canada. With the support of their funding partners, the organization disburses financial awards, deliver programs, and share resources with the goal of increasing graduation rates for Indigenous students.
Charity Intelligence Canada recognized Indspire with their four-star rating and named it a Top 10 Canadian Impact Charity for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 and Maclean’s also selected Indspire as a 2019 and 2020 Top Rated Charity.
