Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge 2022
Thank you to the Community
The Lac du Bonnet Foundation would like to thank all donors for generously supporting this year’s Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge.
A very special thank you goes out to our local Challenge Group Fund whose commitment to matching donations dollar for dollar up to $11,000 helped the LDB Foundation surpass last year’s fundraising efforts, and to the Province of Manitoba and Endow Manitoba for stretching funds by $1.00 each for every $5.00 donated up to $4000.
We are excited to announce that a total of well over $33,000 was raised for our community during this year’s Giving Challenge. Thanks to all for your most generous support.
