Thank you to all those who participated in this year’s Challenge on November 18th. This annual Fundraising Challenge sponsored by The Winnipeg Foundation encourages on-line donations to Manitoba Community Foundations. This year The Winnipeg Foundation and the Province of Manitoba each pledged to ‘stretch’ all donations by 20% to a $2000 maximum.
We are pleased to announce that we received $12,895 in total donations, qualifying our Foundation for the $4000 maximum stretch. So our endowment fund grew by $16,895 thanks to the tremendous support of our donors and the generous support of The Winnipeg Foundation and the Province of Manitoba.

The CARMAN HANDI-VAN ENDOWMENT FUND
The Carman Area Foundation and the Carman Handi-Van Corp. have recently agreed to establish a new Endowment fund in the Foundation. The new Carman Handi-Van Fund is a ‘Charitable Organization’ Fund, a fund type that provides specific benefits for the charity, namely administration of the charity’s permanent endowment and provision of annual financial support to the charity. The Carman Handi-Van Corp. contributed the initial $10,000 donation to establish the Fund. People wishing to support the Carman Handi-Van will now be able to contribute to this endowment fund of the Carman Area Foundation. The new agreement was officially signed by executive members of both Boards on May 23, 2017.
