Donors from all walks of life choose to support their favourite Causes, and their community, though The Foundation. While each fund established expresses a donor’s unique philanthropic goals and wishes, all share The Foundation’s vision of making, ‘a Winnipeg where community life flourishes for all.’

Thank you to all our generous donors!


Daniel McFadyen, a seven-year-old who wants to be a zookeeper, created his fund as he passionately believes in the protection of animals, especially polar bears, pangolins and eagles. He hopes other kids follow his lead and create their own funds. Daniel plans to donate money from his birthday and part of his allowance to his fund. He is the son of a staff member at The Winnipeg Foundation. The annual amount available to spend will be paid to charities at the discretion of The Winnipeg Foundation for projects or programs in the Cause of Environment and Animal Welfare.

These endowment funds were established between Feb. 1, and May 31, 2019.
