OUR HEARTFELT THANKS to The Winnipeg Foundation for awarding us with two sizeable grants this year. The first, given in April, was a $30,000 One Time Community Grant that went towards wages and short-term operating costs for Camp Assiniboia. More recently, we also received a $30,000 Stabilization Grant to cover some of the financial losses that we’ve incurred during the pandemic.
The Winnipeg Foundation connects donors from all walks of life with local charitable organizations that help our city flourish, for all. The Foundation is an endowment-based organization, which means gifts received are pooled and invested. The income generated provides a stable source of support for our community For Good. Forever.
The Foundation makes community grants to charitable organizations in support of the following Cause areas: Arts, Culture & Heritage, Children, Youth & Families, Environment & Animal Welfare, Health, Wellness & Recreation, Literacy, Education & Employment. In 2020, it distributed $73 million to the community.
Established in 1921, The Winnipeg Foundation is Canada’s first community foundation. Today, it is a leader in what has become an international philanthropic movement.
