Impacting Community

November 6, 2016

The Winkler Community Foundation is excited to be celebrating 20 years of granting. Over the past 20 years, the Winkler Community Foundation board has had the privilege of approving over $1 million worth of grants for projects to impact our community. 20 years ago, the first grants approved totaled $5,500. Today, we are granting $90,644.

Each year, the community foundation receives gifts in the form of donations and bequests that help to grow the community foundation’s endowment funds. These gifts are invested and the interested earned annually is granted back into our community. Therefore the gift is never spent but rather it gives back to the community year after year. Those early donations made to the Winkler Community Foundation are still granting back into our community today.

See Grant Recipients for complete list of recipients.

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.
