"Efforts to address the suicide crisis in Indigenous communities have received a major boost in the form of a $200,000 donation, gifted by an Ottawa-based Anglican known for her support of charitable causes. Joan, who asked that her last name not be printed, is a long-time parishioner at All Saints Anglican Church Westboro, and a supporter of local programs such as Cornerstone Housing for Women and the youth program at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. For the last decade Joan -- who is more than 100 years old -- has made annual donations to Anglican ministries, through gifts of Bank of Nova Scotia shares accumulated through her life" (p. 14). "Her donation represents a 'real shot in the arm' to the spiritual crisis affecting Indigenous communities, Indigenous ministries coordinator Canon Ginny Doctor said. Starting this year, the money will be used to fund programs to help prevent suicide -- the foremost being a music program that has proved highly successful through camps in communities such as Six Nations of the Grand River and Whitehorse" (p. 14). "Running a week-long music camp typically costs between $30,000 and $50,000, which covers the cost of musical instruments, instructors, and allowing the community to host" (p. 14). "Joan first heard of the Anglican Church music programs through her friend the Rev. Richard Vroom, retired gift planing officer for the Diocese of Ottawa" (p. 14). "Besides funding music camps and instruction, part of Joan's donation will be put aside in an endowment, with the hope that more people will donate and make programs such as the music camps sustainable in the long run. ... Resources for Mission director Deborah Barretto expressed hope that Joan's donation would inspire others across the country to support programs such as suicide prevention" (p. 15).
