Welcome to the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.

Funding the future. Changing lives.


The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba is a public foundation that manages a growing asset base that exceeds $148 million. The Foundation pools gifts from generous donors and permanently invests them.

The Foundation distributes earned income from the contributed capital of the fund; the capital base is never touched. Since its inception in 1964, the Foundation has distributed over $77 million in grants and scholarships in Winnipeg and across Canada.

Your gift to the Foundation will sustain and enhance a myriad of programs, services, and charitable agencies across the province and help ensure a strong and viable future for all Manitobans. Your gift to the Foundation will be your lasting legacy.
