In 2017, the Winkler Community Foundation supported local people, projects and places with $128,501 in grants!
- This year marked Canada’s 150th anniversary as a nation and we celebrated, along with community foundations across Canada, by supporting a local Canada 150 Projects. This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between The Winkler Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to Coast. These small grants are responsive to local priorities, connected to Canada’s sesquicentennial and will foster a greater sense of belonging, inclusion and reconciliation in our community.
- Another milestone in our history, 2017 marked the first round of grants from the Gordon Wiebe Education Fund. In partnership with the Garden Valley School Division, and with oversight from our community-based Scholarships Committee, the Gordon Wiebe Post-Secondary Scholarships benefited 28 local students with $61,000 towards their post-secondary studies. Awards ranged from $2,000-$5,000 per student.
