Orange Shirt Legacy Fund

The Orange Legacy Fund, initiated by the Orange Shirt Society in 2023 to mark the 10th Year Anniversary of the first Orange Shirt Day in 2013, is dedicated to honoring residential school Survivors and the children who never returned home by raising awareness through the power of public art. 

Creating Lasting Tributes 

Orange Legacy grants are intended to provide start-up funding to support community entrepreneurs, organizations, and partners in creating impactful public art projects. These projects can include murals, mosaics, memorials, sidewalk designs, or other semi-permanent installations that are highly visible and significant. 

Grant recipients are encouraged to undertake culturally authentic and locally relevant projects that align with the Society’s mission of promoting awareness about the legacy of residential schools and the enduring belief that Every Child Matters. 

Through these collaborative and creative public expressions, the Fund seeks to bring Survivors and communities together to reflect on the past and work towards a more inclusive future. 

Donate today and bring us one step closer to our vision of a more inclusive Canada.
