PC Community Foundation

 
 
The Plum Coulee Community Foundation was founded in 2001, under the direction of the Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation. It was established to manage donated funds, and to direct and monitor the work of a variety of volunteer committees, working on a number of projects throughout the community. The Bronfman Foundation, with historical ties to Plum Coulee, made a generous donation toward the projects, and provided extra funds for legal and architectural consultations, as well as for project maintenance.

The community foundation movement in Manitoba, and in Canada, began with the establishment of The Winnipeg Foundation in 1921. The Winnipeg Foundation is now part of an ever-growing network of Manitoba foundations. Our province has the most community foundations, per capita, in the country. Manitoba communities have embraced the concept of establishing permanent endowment funds and using investment earnings from those funds to support worthwhile, local projects that enhance the quality of life in their communities.

Manitoba Community Foundations: Pool the charitable gifts of many donors into permanent, income-earning endowment funds that benefit local communities. Make grants, using the earnings from these funds, to support a wide range of local initiatives - including health, education, social services, arts and culture, and the environment. Provide leadership to their communities by bringing people together from all sectors to identify and address local issues.

If you would like to support the Plum Coulee Community Foundation (donations are tax deductible) please contact plum@mymts.net.  Please contact any of the following board of directors for more information on donating to the endowment fund.  The more money the fund contains the larger the grants given each year to volunteer organizations, educational and municipal projects annually.  In 2016 we gave out $13,150.00 in funding!
