The Brokenhead River Community Foundation encourages residents of Beausejour and the RM of Brokenhead to make a gift during the week of Nov. 9 – 15 as part of the Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge.
For this week only, each $5 gift you make becomes $7! The Winnipeg Foundation will stretch each $5 gift made to the Unrestricted Community Fund with $1. The Manitoba government continues their commitment to Manitoba community foundations with their support of the Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge 2020. The province will also contribute $1 for every $5 gift. Online gifts can be made securely through this link https://www.endowmanitoba.ca/community-foundations/brokenhead-river-community-foundation/ . But remember – please make a gift between November 9-15!
“This is a great opportunity to support your community Foundation,” says Reg Black, President, Brokenhead River Community Foundation. “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving between Nov. 9 – 15 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!”
Gifts made between November 9 – 15 will help grow the Foundation’s capacity to support a wide range of charitable projects in the Beausejour/Brokenhead area for generations to come. Donations to a community foundation are pooled and permanently invested. The gifted donations 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.
Besides the online donation option, donors can mail donations made payable to the Brokenhead River Community Foundation and mailed to Box 2225, Beausejour, R0E0C0. All donations must be dated between November 9th to 15th and received no later than the 15th. Donations can also be dropped off that week at Century 21 Sun Country Realty. E-transfers can be sent to the Brokenhead River Community Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us for more giving options.
