Manitoba’s Culture of Generosity

The Winnipeg Foundation

According to The Fraser Institute’s 2015 Generosity Index, Manitobans continue to lead the way when it comes to charitable giving in Canada. More than a quarter of Manitobans make a charitable gift annually, and they give a larger percentage of their income than residents of any other province. However, across Canada, charitable giving is on the decline.

The Winnipeg Foundation CEO Rick Frost addressed the generosity of Manitobans and changes in philanthropy in his speech, "Sustaining Our Culture of Generosity", noting that Manitobans can continue to lead and accomplish great things when we all work together.
