24-Hr Giving – 2017

November 6, 2017

There’s never been a better day to help our community flourish forever. During the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge on Saturday, November 18th, each $10 gift is worth $20! Annually, the Winnipeg Foundation stretches each $5 gift made to the Winkler Community Endowment Fund by contributing and additional $1. New this year, we announce the BIGGEST STRETCH EVER: The Province of Manitoba, the City of Winkler, Access Credit Union and Winkler Auto-Dealers have partnered with us to contribute an extra $1 each for every $5 gift that you make; AND BDO is leading the way with a $1000 gift!


“Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving on Saturday, Nov. 18 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!” shares Myra Peters, Executive Director of the Winkler Community Foundation. We will be set up at the Winkler Coop on November 18th from 10am-2pm to talk about the Foundation and its impact in the community and to accept donations.


Online gifts can be made securely through

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.
