Thank-you for helping our community flourish

November 26, 2018

On Saturday, Nov. 17th, The Winkler Community Foundation received extra support during Endow Manitoba 24 Hour Giving Challenge. Gifts were stretched; for every $5 donated,  The Winnipeg Foundation, the Manitoba government, the City of Winkler, and local businesses each business added $1, up to a maximum of $2,000 per business, so every $5 became $15.

This year’s challenge was a great success. A total of $49,226* was raised for the Community Fund at the Winkler Community Foundation. We want to thank the community for their support. A special Thank-you to our local sponsors that helped stretch the donors contribution the City of Winkler, Access Credit Union, Triple E, Protec Plumbing and Heating, Winkler Concrete, Golden West Radio, Kroeker Farms, Southern Potato. Thanks to our donors, we are able to help a wide variety of local charitable projects, from day cares to seniors’ projects, scholarships to play structures, food banks to arts & recreation, and much, much more, now and 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.
