Russell Area Heritage and Arts Centre Inc. 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 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 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 Russell Area Heritage and Arts Centre Inc. to be used at their discretion.
