Why Choose The Winnipeg Foundation

We’re stronger together

We’re a community foundation – a charity that supports our community, built by generous donors like you. We’re stronger when we work together, and we have a greater impact, too! When you give to The Winnipeg Foundation, you work with others who are passionate about making Winnipeg the best it can be. In 2023, we received 8,333 gifts from donors, and granted $85.6 million to 1,050 charities! 

Giving for today, tomorrow and forever

The Winnipeg Foundation is made up of a collection of endowment funds. An endowment fund is an investment account for your generosity, and it is the most sustainable way to ensure your gift continues to give to our community forever. When you give, your gift is pooled with gifts from others and invested. The interest earned on those investments is used to make grants to the community every single year. 

You can also support our community with shorter-term, non-endowed options like our Today Fund and Term Fund, which allow you to support registered charities immediately or over a specified period.  

We’re led by community

As a 360-degree grant maker, The Winnipeg Foundation is uniquely positioned to collaborate with community to ensure widespread impact, and to maintain a focus on evolving community needs. When you support our community’s current needs and emerging opportunities, you are providing sustainability for Winnipeg’s future. For good. Forever.
