In effort to support our community during COVID-19, the Winkler Community Foundation has decided to adjust our Grant Deadline for 2020 to August 30th. We understand during this time of uncertainty many of our local charities are in survival mode. Planning for the unknown is challenging to say the least. We also know, as bad as this is, IT WILL END AT SOME POINT and we want to continue to support the community so everyone has something to come back to after this pandemic is over. If you have any questions about our grant program or you have a project that your organization was hoping to have done over the summer months please contact Myra Peters, Executive Director at the Winkler Community Foundation.Read More
