Thank You To The Winnipeg Foundation

Winnipeg Foundation

The Manitoba Wildlife Federation would like to extend our sincere gratitude for a recent grant received from the Winnipeg Foundation in the amount of $10,000.  At least 6 million was distributed to organizations in Winnipeg through Stabilization Grants.  This was a special grant program initiated by the Winnipeg Foundation to support the short and medium-term financial needs of local charitable organizations affected by revenue loss and unexpected expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This incredible contribution will assist with the financial loss the Federation incurred from having to cancel our annual Wild at Heart Fundraising event, an event that normally would have generated $58,000 to go towards promoting wildlife sustainability, management, advocacy and outdoor education programs.  

The Winnipeg Foundation was established in 1921, as Canada’s first community foundation.  Today it is a leader in what has become an international philanthropic movement.  The Foundation is an endowment-based organization where gifts received are pooled and invested.  The income generated provides a stable source of support for our community.  In 2019 alone, the Foundation distributed $57.5 million to the community.
