Patti Fries from the Steinbach Community Foundation stopped by the AM1250 Studio this morning to tell us about Endow Manitoba's 24-hour Giving Challenge!
It's our opportunity to do our part for our community! Watch $5 turn into 7, on Saturday, November 18th by taking part in the 24-hour giving challenge. Make a gift to the Steinbach Community Foundation.
There's never been a better time to help our community flourish forever!! The Winnipeg Foundation will stretch each $5 gift made to the Steinbach Community Foundation with $1. New this year!! The Province of Manitoba will also contribute $1 for every $5 gift! This is the biggest stretch ever available during the 24-Hour Giving Challenge!
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!
