CEO's Message

When you look at our city, what do you see?

A city buzzing with new ideas and energy, a vibrant cultural scene, and passionate citizens?

A place we all share – one that might have some challenges, but is brimming with hope and potential?

That’s the Winnipeg I see and I hope you do, too.

Sometimes it’s hard to look past crime statistics and infrastructure issues to the true heart of our community – the grassroots charitable organizations working tirelessly to help individuals and families and the generous people who make that work possible.

Working at The Winnipeg Foundation, I’m inspired every day by the commitment and generosity that surrounds us all. Winnipeggers are known for resilience, for sharing what we have and advocating for the most disadvantaged. For ninety-eight years, people from all walks of life have invested in this city through gifts to the Foundation. It’s an honour to be part of this remarkable community of giving and witness this generosity in action.

I’d love to hear about your vision for our community and look forward to working with you For good. Forever.
