Thanks to the Winnipeg Foundation

The Winnipeg Rowing Club would like to gratefully acknowledge the significant financial contribution of the Winnipeg Foundation towards the bathroom renovations at 20 Lyndale Drive earlier this year. We thank them for their generous support.

The Winnipeg Foundation connects donors from all walks of life with local charitable organizations that help our city flourish, for all. The Foundation is an endowment-based organization which means gifts received are pooled and invested. The income generated provides a stable source of support for our community For Good. Forever. The Foundation makes grants to charitable organizations in the areas of: community service, education and employment, health, environment, heritage, arts and culture, and recreation. In 2016, it distributed $31.6 million in grants to more than 900 charities. Established in 1921, The Winnipeg Foundation is Canada’s first community foundation. Today, it is a leader in what has become an international philanthropic movement.
