Help Winkler Community Foundation reach their Giving Challenge goal of $50,000. For this week only, every gift will be stretched by The Winnipeg Foundation, the Manitoba government, the City of Winkler and 13 local businesses – increasing the amount the local Foundation receives.

“This is a great opportunity to support your local Foundation,” says Corey Hildebrand, Chairperson of the Winkler Community Foundation. “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving between Nov. 13 – 19 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!”
Donations to a community foundation are pooled and permanently invested. Gifts are never spent and the money will always stay in the community. Every year, these investments generate money that is distributed to support local charitable needs. Community Foundation’s provides local support that lasts forever.
Manitoba is home to 56 community foundations – more than any other area of the country. Every year, these foundations invest millions of dollars into a wide range of local charitable projects. They help ensure our hometowns are vibrant and thriving.
