24 Hour Giving Challenge-Nov.16

November 1, 2019

 

The 24 Hour Giving Challenge is an opportunity to talk to people in our community about the Winkler Community Foundation and its impact in our community.

The challenge is an opportunity to grow the general COMMUNITY ENDOWMENT FUND – impacting the community forever. The community fund supports local charities through annual grants. Charities apply for grants annually. These grants allow them to put more energy into the work they do and hopefully spend less time fundraising.

The giving challenge is initiated by the Winnipeg Foundation to support all community foundations. They also provide access to online donations through Endow Manitoba website at no charge and prepare all receipting for gifts made during the giving challenge. They are a huge support to the community foundations in Manitoba.

These stretching contributions inspired the Winkler Community Foundation. If we can get $2 for every $5 why not see if we can stretch donations even further and triple the match.

Stretching contributions:

City of Winkler, Access Credit Union, Triple E, Kroeker Farms, Protec, Southern Potato, Winkler Concrete, Goldenwest Radio, Elias Wood Work,  The Winkler Auto Dealers

This means a gift of $5 becomes $15. (for the first $10,000 collected)

We are thankful for the support in our community. Many of our donors wait for this event annually to give knowing the impact of their gift will be stretched. The 24 hour giving challenge also brings in awareness as well as new donors.

The greatest part is that each gift keeps on giving. It impacts the community annually through our grants program and will continue to impact the community FOREVER.

Pay It Forward May

  Pay it Forward is something we can and should be doing all year round. The Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation has chosen one month to be more active in our efforts – not because we have to, but because we want to. Not because we’ve experienced kindness from others, but because we want to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. Pay it Forward. Inspire others. Impact our Community.
