Winnipeg River Heritage Museum has partnered with Francofonds Inc. to established this permanently endowed Manitoba Heritage Trust Fund to support their work.
The Manitoba government established the Manitoba Heritage Trust Endowment Fund to stretch gifts to these funds. Every $2 given has the potential to be stretched by additional $1, that means a gift of $2 becomes $3.
The Winnipeg Foundation will generate the tax receipts for all gift directed to this fund under the Manitoba Heritage Trust Program. Gifts to this fund are invested in perpetuity and a portion of the annual income generated for grantmaking is distributed to Winnipeg River Heritage Museum to be used at their discretion.
