The New Iceland Heritage Museum has partnered with The Westshore Community foundation and The Winnipeg Foundation to established 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 New Iceland Heritage Museum is a gateway to understanding the unique history of New Iceland in Canada. Their high quality permanent and travelling exhibits, programs and events tell the story of New Iceland, the challenges and the achievements of its people, and their relationship with the land and the lake.
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 the annual income generated for grantmaking is distributed to The New Iceland Heritage Museum to be used at their discretion.
