Foundation Highlights

Established 5 (five) new funds
The Darlingford Cemetery Fund, the Manitou Cemetery Fund, the Pembina Manitou Area Foundation Scholarship Fund, the St. Luke’s Pembina Crossing Church Cemetery Fund, and the St. Mary’s Anglican Church Kaleida Fund.

Danny Maxwell donation
A former resident of the Pembina Manitou area donated $50,000 in bank shares and cash, to commemorate his fifty years of marriage to Joyce (nee Bowler), and the memory of Joyce’s parents Elwin and Ethel (nee Rinn) Bowler.

Donation of mutual fund units worth more than $20,000 to General Community Fund
Another local resident made a generous gift, and because the investment was donated in kind, not in cash, the full amount went to charity, rather than a percentage going to income tax.

PMAF to administer Darlingford Memorial Park assets
Recognizing the value in the PMAF / Winnipeg Foundation investment model, this local charity agreed to allocate a sum of long term assets to a new fund with PMAF.

Matching funds available
PMAF matches a portion of the funds raised by the local collegiate’s philanthropic group, SWAT (Stingers Working At Tomorrow) throughout the school year.
