24 Hour Challenge Goal Reached

December 22, 2016

A huge Thank-you to all that stopped by to visit us at the Winkler Coop or donated online to the community fund during the 24 Hour Giving Challenge on Nov 19. We surpassed our goal and were able to maximize the stretch from the Winnipeg Foundation. In total, including donations made to other funds, we brought in $15,200. These gifts will continue to impact the community forever!

Thanks to our donors, The Winkler Community Foundation is able to help a wide variety of local charitable projects, now and forever. Three Elementary School play structures, The Bunker, Winkler Family Resource Centre, the Winkler Senior Centre, South Central Cancer Resource were only a few of the organizations funded this year through our annual Smart & Caring Community Fund grants. Check out our 2016 Grant Recipients for a complete list of projects supported.

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.
