Organizations That Support Indigenous Youth
During the development of Cheekbone Beauty, Jenn researched the current makeup landscape as well as charities that are helping close the educational funding gap that exists between Indigenous and non‑Indigenous students. After in depth research, the Cheekbone team found the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society (FNCFCS) and the connection between their mission and Jenn’s family experience was serendipitous.
While we continue to support the FNCFA today by donating 10% of profits to Shannen’s Dream, Cheekbone Beauty has made contributions of over $185,000 cash and in-kind donations to various organizations whose mission aligns with ours: to help every Indigenous youth see and feel their enormous value in the world.
Organizations include, but are not limited to the following:
- Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) Women’s Shelter
- Youth Leadership Society of BC
- Toronto Indigenous Harm Reduction
- Horizons for Youth
- Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business
- Onaman Collective
