30 Years of Empowerment

by Josh Kerr | May 14, 2024


We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey towards empowerment and philanthropy - the 30th anniversary of our Women's Endowment Fund (WEF).

Established in 1994 with a visionary purpose, the WEF has long supported women and girls across our province.

So many like-minded, generous supporters in the community aim to encourage and celebrate women's philanthropy by supporting WEF each year. Because of them, it has only continued to grow. WEF is a meaningful representation of "women helping women."

Since its inception, WEF has distributed close to $1,000,000 in grants to more than 100 different organizations. These grants have served as catalysts for positive change, funding initiatives that uplift and empower women in various aspects of their lives.

The fund has played an instrumental role in supporting organizations dedicated to helping those who need it. Programs that have benefitted from WEF grants include:

• Improving healthcare access.

• Supporting low-income single mothers.

• Helping renovate residential homes for women with intellectual disabilities, and so much more.

The impact of the Women's Endowment Fund can genuinely be felt across our province.

As we commemorate this significant milestone, we want to thank all our supporters, donors, and partners who have been instrumental in making the Women's Endowment Fund successful. Your commitment to WEF has been the driving force behind its achievements for 30 years.

At the beginning of May, we will host a celebration at the Pavilion in Assiniboine Park to honour the founders, builders, and donors of this unique fund, and we will introduce the program to the next wave of donors.

Together, let us strive toward a future where every woman has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.
