For 100 years, citizens have been working together through The Winnipeg Foundation to achieve more. The charts below show the growth of funds at The Foundation as well as total distributions to the community. The Foundation’s sound Investment Policies ensure reliable annual distributions upon which charities can rely. This is why more than 200 charities have decided to establish Agency Funds at The Foundation.
