Hugh Brown has supported charities with individual gifts for years. As he thought about his philanthropy, he wanted to make an impact for generations to come, consolidate his giving and still support many Winnipeg based organizations. Hugh established this Community Building Fund to fulfill his philanthropic goals.
This fund supports a wide variety of programs and projects across the community based on funding requests from local charities through our Community Grants program. By supporting this fund you give the added gift of flexibility, allowing us to respond to the changing needs and opportunities in our community now and forever.
Your gift will be pooled and invested with the generated income distributed as grants to local registered charities. As the original gift remains invested, your contribution will continue to benefit the people of Winnipeg in perpetuity.
