Give to an Existing Fund

Giving is a way to express your unique passions, concerns and interests.

The Winnipeg Foundation is home to a large variety of funds, each with its own specific name, purpose and history.

Kal Barteski’s Polar Bear Fund is open to contributions from anyone who shares her love and concern for the bears.

Contribute to a fund

You may wish to add to a fund started by a friend or loved one, or contribute to a fund established by a like-minded person you've never met. Donors from all walks of life have already established funds that support specific charities, fields of interest, scholarships and much more. Many of these funds are open to gifts from anyone who wants to contribute.

Does your favourite charity have a fund?

Many local charitable organizations have established an Agency Fund with The Foundation. Your gift to their fund provides them with a reliable source of revenue and secures their future work in the community.
