Who We Are & What We Do

We are For Good. Forever.

We want to help you give back to our community by connecting you with causes important to you For Good. We are an endowment-based organization, so your gift continues to give Forever.

Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to work with everyone in our community towards a shared goal of reconciliation. A copy of the Philanthropic Community's Declaration of Action was signed in 2015 by both The Foundation’s Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer, and helps guide our strategic direction.

Who We Are & What We Do

The Winnipeg Foundation is Canada's first community foundation, established in 1921.

Our vision is "a Winnipeg where community life flourishes for all."

What is a community foundation?

Community foundations are public charitable organizations, built through generous gifts of all sizes that are pooled and permanently invested. The interest earned from these endowments generates a sustainable source of support for local charitable projects. In 2016, we received $37.3 million in gifts and granted $31.6 million to more than 900 organizations.
