Rick Frost has been CEO of The Winnipeg Foundation since 1997. Canada’s first community foundation will celebrate its centennial in 2021.
Last year The Winnipeg Foundation distributed more than $57.5 million to the community. Now, dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic means Rick’s team is responding to community need in an unprecedented fashion, while practicing social distancing and working primarily from home.
I sat down with Rick Frost over video chat, to talk about COVID-19 and The Foundation’s response, how the world is changing and will continue to change, and what plans and strategies are in place for The Winnipeg Foundation moving forward.
This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Rick Frost.
