Drive for $50,000

January 25, 2016

The Winkler Community Foundation has raised just over $41,000 towards the Drive to raise $50,000. This drive was spurred by a challenge put out by Thomas Sill Foundation early in 2015. The Thomas Sill Foundation will match 1:2 to a maximum of $50,000 in effort to grow the general Community Endowment Fund. The drive continues until September 2016.

There’s never been a better time to give. By growing the Community Endowment Fund, more money will back into the community annually to make Winkler a better place to live, work and play in.

The Winkler Community Foundation is rooted in community, for community.
