At Firelight, we understand that some projects which are culturally, politically, or ecologically important to Aboriginal communities are also very difficult to fund. We commit a portion of our revenues to funding these types of programs or research projects. We will consider supporting community-based research and projects with partial or full funding that would otherwise be hard to fund and have high cultural significance. To assist in the funding allocation process, Firelight will be utilizing a funding docket approach for 2019 Social Return projects. The proposed intake deadline for the spring is June 15th, 2019 by 5pm PST, which will be able to fund projects up to $15,000.
