Our commitment to our community

Building a community that truly is “for all”.

The Winnipeg Foundation is committed to listening, learning and to doing better. The following are just some of the areas The Foundation is focusing its efforts in.

Truth and Reconciliation

The Winnipeg Foundation acknowledges we are on Treaty 1 territory – the original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.

We are committed to work with everyone in our community towards a shared goal of truth and reconciliation.

The Foundation & Truth and Reconciliation



Staff Education

Grant programs

  • Walking Together Grants – The Foundation’s grant program supporting youth-led Truth and Reconciliation projects.
  • Reconciliation Grants – The Foundation’s investment of $1.3 million for projects that support truth and reconciliation.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

The Winnipeg Foundation is committed to learning and to doing better; it recognizes that diversity, equity inclusion and belonging (DEIB), like truth and reconciliation, is a journey – one that requires urgency.

We have been using a DEIB lens to review all parts of our operations, from office culture, recruitment, policies and compensation, to governance, fund development, grantmaking and communications.
