The Friends of Dalnavert Museum has partnered with The Winnipeg Foundation to establish this permanently endowed Manitoba Heritage Trust Fund to support their work.
The Manitoba government established the Manitoba Heritage Trust Endowment (MHTE) Fund to stretch gifts to Heritage Trust Funds. Each gift has the potential to be stretched by up to 50 per cent.
The Friends of Dalnavert Museum are committed to: Preserving and maintaining the Museum buildings, grounds, and collection, presenting engaging programs and exhibits that interpret the history of the house, its inhabitants, and Winnipeg's early heritage for visitors, and developing partnerships and programming that will make Dalnavert a cultural centre for city residents.
The Winnipeg Foundation will generate the tax receipts for all gifts directed to this fund under the Manitoba Heritage Trust Program. Gifts to this fund are invested in perpetuity and the annual income generated for grantmaking is distributed to the Friends of Dalnavert Museum to be used at their discretion.
