A phone call I’ll never forget: MakeWay receives transformative gift from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott
I’m thrilled to share the exciting news that MakeWay is about to receive a transformative gift of USD 15million from MacKenzie Scott. We have a deep responsibility to steward these funds in a good way to advance community-led transformation—while also leveraging this gift to create even greater positive impact.
Check out our brand new Strategy! We head into the next three years with a clear sense of our unique role: to apply all our tools and resources in support of community-led transformation. Knowing that change is inevitable, this strategy is our North Star to help guide us toward the impact we hope to achieve.
The Province of BC announced it will provide $30 million for partnerships that empower local leaders to secure a sustainable future for their watersheds and the communities that depend on them. MakeWay and shared platform project, Watersheds BC will steward $15 million to support Indigenous-led projects for watershed health.
