Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge

November 2, 2021

The Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge – November 15 – 21, 2021 is an opportunity to grow the general COMMUNITY ENDOWMENT FUND – impacting the community forever. The community fund supports local charities through annual grants. These grants allow charities to put more energy into the work they do and impact our community.

The giving challenge is initiated by Endow Manitoba to support Manitoba community foundations. They provide access to online donations through Endow Manitoba website at no charge and prepare all receipting for gifts made online. Endow Manitoba is a huge support to the community foundations in Manitoba. The Winkler Community Foundation took the Endow Manitoba stretching initiative one step further and reached out to local businesses to help stretch donations made during this challenge even further, making your donation have an even greater impact.

Stretching contributions:

This means a gift of $20 becomes $40.

The greatest part is that each gift keeps on giving. It impacts the community annually through our grants program and will continue to impact the community FOREVER.

 The Giving Challenges directly impacts the Community Fund allowing more general community grants to be distributed annually.
