Endow Manitoba Giving Challenge

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 $8000 helped the LDB Foundation surpass this year’s fundraising goal, 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 over $30,000 was raised for our community during this year’s Giving Challenge. Thanks to all for your most generous support.
