FAQs - Granting


What grant programs or funds can I apply to for funding through The Winnipeg Foundation?

You can apply for funding from The Winnipeg Foundation through any of our grant programs listed on Apply for a Grant.

The Winnipeg Foundation is also home to several Donor Advised Funds that allow donors to decide which organizations will receive grants from their endowment fund. Most of these funds do not accept applications directly but work with The Foundation’s grant application process to select their grants. The Burns Foundation is a Donor Advised Fund that accepts direct applications. To find out more about their grant application process, visit The Burns Foundation page.

Can I request money from The Winnipeg Foundation if I have a personal dire need?

The Foundation does not make grants or loans to individuals. As a community foundation, it can only provide grants to organizations that are registered charities.
