There’s never been a better time to help our community flourish forever! Carberry and Area Community Foundation encourages residents of Carberry and Area to make a gift on Saturday, November 17 as part of the Endow Manitoba 24-Hour Giving Challenge. 
On that day only, each $5 gift you make be­comes $7! The Winnipeg Foun­dation will stretch each $5 gift made to the Carberry & Area Com­munity General Fund with $1. This fall, the Manitoba government announced their continued commitment to Manitoba community foundations extending their support of the 24-Hour Giving Challenge to 2020. The province will also contribute $1 for every $5 gift.
Online gifts can be made securely through In person donations are being accepted at Falk Pharmacy, Meyers Meats and Spud City Food Mart.  
“This is a great opportunity to support Car­berry & Area Community Foun­dation,” says Blair Graham, Chairman of Car­berry & Area Com­munity Foundation. “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving on Saturday, November 17 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!”
Last year during the 24 Hour Giving Challenge, CACF received 31 gifts totalling $5,700.00.  This amount was stretched by The Winnipeg Foun­dation by $1,140.00 and stret­ched by the Province of Manitoba by $1,140.00 for a total of $7,980.00 to Carberry and Area in just one day!  Thank you to our generous donors for making this possible!  
Gifts made on Satur­day, November 17 will help grow Carberry & Area Community Foun­dation’s capacity to support a wide range of charitable projects in Carberry & Area for generations to come.
Donations to a community foundation are pooled and permanently invested. Gifts are never spent and the money will always stay in the community. Every year, these investments generate money that is distributed to support local charitable needs. Community foundations provide support that lasts forever.
Manitoba is home to 55 community foundations – more than any other area of the country. Every year, these foundations invest millions of dollars into a wide range of local charitable projects. They help ensure our hometowns are vibrant and thriving.
