Annauma Community Foundation supports community-led initiatives that directly impact and improve the lives of Inuit in Nunavut.

Annauma Community Foundation


Annauma Community Foundation exists to deliver funding and support programming that strengthens communities and upholds Inuit values, skills, and worldview in a manner that encourages lifelong learning and nurtures collaborative relationships.  

Annauma’s goal is to link community, philanthropists, corporate partners, funders, and governments interested in investing in community-identified needs and capacity building. There have been many advancements in Nunavut over the past few decades, yet there are families who still need some support to meet some of their basic needs, including safety, housing, and food, as well as to uphold the cultural identity and language that defines core self-worth and dignity. 

Inuit communities know the best solutions to the social issues they are experiencing.  Annauma supports communities to take actions to implement their own solutions and will serve to provide this support in the most impactful and respectful ways. 

We invite you to invest in Annauma’s priority areas with the knowledge that each one is connected to the social, economic, and natural environment:  

1. Inuit Children and Youth 

2. Community Health and Wellbeing 

3. Education and Learning 

4. Arts and Culture  

5. Community-identified Opportunities
