Wanda Brascoupe is Bear Clan, Skarù rę’, Kanien’keha, Anishinabe and member of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg.

Wanda has led her life with inclusion and a bridge-builder mindset as a foundational approach. In her early career, she co-founded a consulting firm focused on mutual outcomes that endured for 20 years. During this time, she blended her experience in Western business with her Indigenous philanthropic path. Whether in a business or philanthropic setting, she leads with her innate skills of inclusion combined with lived experience to invite conversations that tangibly untangle the perceived barriers about the Indigenous and non-Indigenous landscape. Stemming from her bridge-builder mindset, Wanda has created space with those she works with to reshape relationships through actionable and achievable pathways.

Understanding the truth of the brilliance and ingenuity of Indigenous people, Wanda co-founded a moonshot idea in late 2019. The pandemic sparked the Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund (IPRF), an all-Indigenous-led foundation solely supporting Indigenous-led organizations. IPRF leads with inclusion and understanding that Indigenous Peoples have answers and approaches that often go unrecognized by traditional granting structures. Wanda recognized over the last three years of working with 1000+ organizations that many giving practices cause unintentional harm or re-harm to those they wish to support. The initial research shows that communities are respected, understood and thrive with this method. IPRF has secured $35 million+ of unencumbered support with over 30 partners in three years.

Wanda’s path to walking in two worlds comes from her parents and grandparents’ distinctive ability to safeguard their worldviews while simultaneously shining a light on humanity. Her traditional education stems from Haudenosaunee law, and her Western education includes Harvard Business School Executive Education. She is currently a master’s candidate in Philanthropy and Non-profit Leadership at Carleton University. Wanda is most proud of her three daughters’ personal and educational accomplishments, staying grounded in their culture and attending Cornell University.

Our Mission is to inspire, challenge, and equip leaders achieve great heights.
