Now is the time to help our community flourish forever! Brandon Area Community Foundation encourages residents of Brandon and area to make a gift between Nov. 14 – 20 as part of the Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge. For this week only, every gift will
be stretched by The Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba government – increasing the amount the Brandon Area Community Foundation receives.

The Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba government are committed to the growth of community foundations across Manitoba, each providing a maximum stretch of $2,000 per foundation. Brandon Area Community Foundation can receive up to $4,000 in stretch funding.

Online gifts can be made securely through endowMB.org. Contact the Brandon Area Community Foundation for more giving options.

“This is a great opportunity to support Westman through the Brandon Area Community Foundation’s, community fund,” says Michelle Hood, Chair, Brandon Area Community Foundation “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving between Nov. 14 – 20 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!

Gifts made between Nov. 14 – 20 will help grow Brandon Area Community Foundation’s capacity to support a wide range of charitable projects in Westman for generations to come.

Donations to a community foundation are pooled and permanently invested. Gifts are never spent, and the money will always stay in the community. Every year, these investments generate money that is distributed to support local charitable needs. Community foundations provide support that lasts forever.

Manitoba is home to 56 community foundations – more than any other area of the country. Every year, these foundations invest millions of dollars into a wide range of local charitable projects. They help ensure our hometowns are vibrant and thriving. For more information, or to find the community foundation nearest you, visit endowMB.org
