Aliya joined The Winnipeg Foundation in 2019 as the Youth Engagement Coordinator before transitioning into her current role as Grants Officer in 2021. She reviews applications for Camp and Summer Program, Nourishing Potential, Professional Development, and Community grants.
Ten years before officially joining the Grants Team, Aliya was a volunteer through The Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy, Summer Internship Program, and alumni programs. She went on to obtain her Bachelor of Arts in English with a focalization in Young People’s Texts and Cultures from the University of Winnipeg, and to work as a communications specialist in the non-profit sector. This work instilled in her a lasting appreciation for both community and story-telling, and loves the way the two intersect in philanthropy.Back to Staff
