Circles of Rhythm Foundation

The Circles of Rhythm Foundation’s (CORF) aim is to bring the benefits of the Integrated Community Drum Circles (ICDC) to those affected by “The Three R’s”: Recovery, Resiliency, & Reconciliation. The UNITY annual fundraiser along with donations, and government grants will
help  fund the important mission of the CORF & other commUNITY
agencies who are supporting affected marginalized populations in
Calgary and the surrounding area. 

The Circles of Rhythm Foundation (CORF), incorporated as a
philanthropic Society since August 2015, has a mission to maximize the therapeutic impact and community building benefits of the Integrated Community Drum Circle (ICDC) within select marginalized
communities in Alberta.

As it stands, the CORF is in the process of registering as a
non-profit/charitable organization through Service Alberta. This is a
lengthy process and it will not be attainable without your help. Our first call to action is to raise $25,000 in order to finalize our registration as a charitable organization.

The funds raised will be used to facilitate the planning, operationalizing, and implementation of affordable therapeutic Integrated Community Drumming Circle programming for our target “Three-R’s” population:


RESILIENCY- servicing people who:
Identify as victims of abuse
Living on a limited income 
Experienced adverse childhood events
Have immigrated to Canada

RECOVERY- servicing people who:
Struggle with substance abuse & addiction 
Live with mental health concerns
Have a physical or mental disability
Live with a chronic health concern

RECONCILIATION – honouring & supporting our:
Indigenous Peoples of North America 
Peoples impacted by the Indian Residential School legacy
Leaders in Indigenous reconciliation & conversation

Become part of something BIG! Circles of Rhythm Foundation's
(CORF) is taking the next step towards building commUNITY through
rhythm, everywhere, with your donation we are one step closer to our goal of applying for charitable, non-for profit status!
