Address Winnipeg’s Needs and Opportunities

With your gift you are fostering innovation, tackling some of our community's biggest challenges and providing a strong foundation for a future we can only imagine.

Community Building Fund


Gifts to Community Building Funds have helped Welcome Place settle hundreds of refugees in our community.

If you want to support the full range of needs in our community, a gift to this general fund will do just that. Your support enables our staff to respond to requests from charitable organizations through our Community Grants program, address changing needs in our city and take on innovative new projects.

Until September 30, 2017, The Winnipeg Foundation is boosting gifts made to all Community Building Funds – adding $1 for every $5 you give (up to a maximum of $2,000 per fund per year).
