Giving Challenge

December 14, 2020

Thank you to everyone that supported our community with your thoughtful gift to the Community Fund at the Winkler Community Foundation during the Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge. This year’s challenge was a great success for community foundations across the province; your gift, which stays here in Winkler has been stretched by The Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba government, City of Winkler and local businesses.

We are so Thankful for your generous support. During this year’s challenge we raised $42,746 for the Community Fund along with additional gifts designated for other funds held at the foundation. The money raised is able to help a wide variety of local charitable projects, now and forever. Each year we have more requests for charitable projects then funds available to grant. You can be confident your gift will have lasting impact in Winkler.

The Winkler Community Foundation respects donors’ wishes regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information. If you do not wish to receive digital or printed communications, please contact us.

On behalf of our community, and the future generations who will benefit from your generosity, thank you again for your gift. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 204-362-9292 or at myra@winklercommunityfoundation.com if you have any questions about the community fund or Winkler Community Foundation.

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.
