  Both The Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba Government will stretch every $5 given to the local Deloraine-Winchester, and Brenda-Waskada Funds within the Southwest Manitoba Regional Foundation by $1 each.  $5 becomes $7! 

  Stretching “Your Gifts” means even more benefit to the local communities of Deloraine, Goodlands and Waskada  as well as the respective municipalities. Southwest Manitoba Regional Foundation plays a vital and lasting role by supporting charitable projects that improve life for all of us. Yearly grants are possible thanks to generous gifts from local donors from all walks of life.

  There are 55 community foundations in our province, and Southwest Manitoba Regional Foundation which was established in 1994 is one of them.  All Board Members of the Southwest Manitoba Regional Foundation are appointed by the local governing bodies of the Brenda-Waskada, and Deloraine-Winchester, Two Borders Municipalities, and Town of Melita.  

  Foundations are pleased to receive support anytime during the year, no matter the size of the gift, and each contribution improves life here for generations to come.  Saturday, November 17th is a great time to invest in the future of the municipalities of Deloraine-Winchester and Brenda-Waskada due to the inclusion of the stretch dollars.   What better way to help the unrestricted endowment funds grow in your local area.    

  Online gifts can be made securely through www.endowmanitoba.ca.
