On behalf of the Board – and more importantly our Community – thank you to all those who made gifts to the Brokenhead River Community Foundation during the recent Giving Challenge. We are pleased to report that your donations over the week totaled $27,786.70! With the additional bump up of $4,000 from The Winnipeg Foundation and the Province of Manitoba, the grand total is $31,786.70!! This is by far our best challenge yet!
The impact of this will be long lasting. These new funds raised are invested and never spent with just a portion of the interest going back into the Community annually. The Foundation’s current spending policy is 4% so – without factoring growth of these funds – $1,271.47 goes back into the Community every year. Forever!
