24-Hr Giving Success!

November 21, 2017

Our community’s generosity has once again shone brightly:

 

Gifts made to our community fund on Saturday, November 18 during the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge were stretched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 with generous support from The Winnipeg Foundation, the Province of Manitoba, the City of Winkler, Access Credit Union, and Winkler Auto-Dealers – Hometown Ford, Janzen Chevrolet Buick GMC & Southland Honda. BDO started the challenge with a gift of $1,000 and by midnight we had raised $37326! These gifts will add another $1300 to our granting pool every year, forever.

Our sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in this challenge by spreading the news, by volunteering to host our table, by sponsoring matching funds, and by offering gifts to the community fund.

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.
