How to Make a Donation to the ICF

Giving to the Interlake Community Foundation is easy and the funds will help your community forever! Your gift will be pooled with other gifts that will ensure maximum potential earnings at a minimal administrative expense. It’s a great way to create a lasting legacy.

Gifts and donations to the ICF may qualify as gifts to a registered charity for income tax purposes, and the ICF will issue the required receipt.

Your donation can be made in several ways:

  • Endow Manitoba’s website – To donate to the Interlake Community Foundation securely with a credit card on-line, please click here https://www.endowmanitoba.ca/community-foundations/interlake-community-foundation/  All credit card donations are processed for us by the Winnipeg Foundation.

  • An Annual or Monthly recurring gift. You make an initial contribution and a commitment to add to the initial donation over a period of months or years. Click here to set up with a credit card and click “make a repeating gift” https://www.mycharitytools.com/gift/wpgfdn/donate?fund=254
  • Publicly listed securities. This link will take you to the information needed at the Winnipeg Foundation, where most of our funds are invested. https://www.wpgfdn.org/giving/gifts-of-securities/Donating gifts of securities (including stocks, mutual funds and bonds) is a great way to support your community and reduce your tax bill. When you transfer securities to the ICF through the  Winnipeg Foundation, you receive a tax receipt and eliminate capital gains tax. The Winnipeg Foundation does not charge the ICF a fee to process these transaction. Please speak with your financial or tax advisor to see if this is the best option for you.
  • A bequest in a will;
  • A gift of life insurance by naming the Interlake Community Foundation as a beneficiary;
  • A gift in memory of a relative or friend. If you give us the name and address of the family, we will send them a card to let them know you have made a memorial donation.

You can donate to any of our funds, or leave it unrestricted to be used where we need it. For a list of our funds, visit https://interlakefoundation.ca/our-funds/ click the fund name for more info on each fund.

The Foundation provides an excellent opportunity to help your community forever. Named funds can be set up for as little as $5,000 that will ensure your family is remembered in perpetuity. Named funds will receive continuous recognition in various formats. Contact us as there are several options.

The Community Builder Club is another alternative that only requires a commitment to give monthly or annually with your credit card to the fund that supports your community.
