A Better Community

...For Today



Welcome to Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation

The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation is a community based philanthropic organization led by a dedicated Board with the goal of building significant capital, the annual earnings of which will benefit our community and its residents today, tomorrow and forever.

All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible. Unless directed otherwise, donations are invested in endowed funds, the earnings from which provide funds that allow the Foundation to support worthwhile organizations and groups who are working to improve the quality of life in our community.

Special Announcement

The LDB Foundation is pleased to announce that a very generous group of philanthropists in our community have created a Challenge Group Fund to encourage donations during the Giving Challenge. The Challenge Group Fund will match donations made to our Foundation’s general fund dollar for dollar. In addition, the Winnipeg Foundation and Province of Manitoba are offering 20 percent top-ups to $2000. Through each of these stretching and matching programs, your $1.00 gift has the potential to grow to $2.80.




Foundation Grants and Information

Grant applications are called for twice annually March 31 and September 30.
