Our community’s generosity has once again shone brightly: Gifts made to our community fund on Saturday, November 18 during the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge were stretched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 with generous support from The Winnipeg Foundation, the Province of Manitoba, the City of Winkler, Access Credit Union, and Winkler Auto-Dealers – Hometown Ford, Janzen Chevrolet Buick GMC & Southland Honda. BDO started the challenge with a gift of $1,000 and by midnight we had raised $37326! These gifts will add another $1300 to our granting pool every year, forever. Our sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in this challenge by spreading the news, by volunteering to host our table, by sponsoring matching funds, and by offering gifts to the community fund.Read More
There’s never been a better day to help our community flourish forever. During the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge on Saturday, November 18th, each $10 gift is worth $20! Annually, the Winnipeg Foundation stretches each $5 gift made to the Winkler Community Endowment Fund by contributing and additional $1. New this year, we announce the BIGGEST STRETCH EVER: The Province of Manitoba, the City of Winkler, Access Credit Union and Winkler Auto-Dealers have partnered with us to contribute an extra $1 each for every $5 gift that you make; AND BDO is leading the way with a $1000 gift! “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving on Saturday, Nov. 18 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!” shares Myra Peters, Executive Director of the Winkler Community Foundation. We will be set up at the Winkler Coop on November 18th from 10am-2pm to talk about the Foundation and its impact in the community and to accept donations.
