Endow Manitoba 24-7 Hour Giving Challenge

This year, the 24/7 Giving Challenge will run from Monday, November 15 to Sunday, November 21 . During this time period, donations to our All Communities Fund or other unrestricted funds will receive a top up from the Province of Manitoba and the Winnipeg Foundation. Please consider making a donation during this time. This link will take you to the Endow MB site to make a secure donation with your credit card. Receipts for online donations will be issued from the Winnipeg Foundation.

The Winnipeg Foundation and the Province of Manitoba will stretch each $5 gift made to the Interlake Community Foundation with $1 each (that’s an instant increase of 40%) to a maximum of $2000 each.

In addition, local resident Lloyd Jensen has again made a generous commitment to match all unrestricted gifts up to a maximum of $5000.00. Together, the matching dollars mean that the first $10,000 donated will actually be $19,000!

To be eligible, on-line gifts must be made between Nov 15th to 21st the foundation’s unrestricted funds or All Communities Fund at See below for other options. Stretching your gift means even more benefit for our communities.

Our community foundation supports all aspects of life in the RMs of Rockwood, Rosser and Woodlands and the Towns of Stonewall and Teulon, making grants to a wide variety of worthy causes – from daycares to seniors’ homes, scholarships to school improvements, food banks to fitness, and more.

Our community grants are possible thanks to generous gifts from local donors such as yourself. No matter the size of your gift, your contribution will improve life here for generations to come. All donations are welcome, and those over $20 will receive a tax receipt. Click here for a printable hand out Giving-Challenge-Info-Sheet ICF 2021
