Each $5 gift is worth $7 during the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge on Saturday, Nov. 16
There’s never been a better time to help our community flourish forever! On Saturday, Nov. 16, each $5 gift you make to the CARMAN AREA FOUNDATION is worth $7 during the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge. The Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba government will stretch each $5 gift made to our Foundation with $1 each.
Only gifts made between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. at endowMB.org to the Carman Area Foundation General Unrestricted Fund or any of the Sperling, Roland, RM of Grey Community Funds will be eligible. Contact the Carman Area Foundation (www.carmanareafoundation.com ) or email firstname.lastname@example.org (204-745-6947) for all the details.
Stretching your gift means even more benefit for our local communities. The Carman Area Foundation plays a vital, lasting role by supporting charitable projects that improve life for all of us.
Our community foundation supports all aspects of life in the communities we serve making grants to a wide variety of worthy causes – from daycares to seniors’ homes, school improvements to the arts, health services to recreation, and much, much more.
These grants are possible thanks to generous gifts from local donors from all walks of life. Community foundations pool and endow (permanently invest) all gifts and the income earned supports a variety of projects within the foundation’s catchment area. The original contributions are never spent, ensuring a lasting legacy for donors and a permanent source of support for the community.
Canada’s community foundation movement started in 1921 with the establishment of The Winnipeg Foundation. Today there are 55 community foundations in our province – more than a quarter of Canada’s total. These foundations are part of Manitoba’s history of generosity, a tradition in which we can all participate and take pride.
Saturday, Nov. 16 is a great time to invest in the future of Carman and surrounding communities. (Of course, your local community foundation will be glad to receive your support at any time of year!) No matter the size of your gift, your contribution will improve life here for generations to come.
