President and CEO's Message

The University of Winnipeg Foundation

Brian DalyThank you to our growing community of over 10,000 donors whose ongoing support makes The University of Winnipeg and its Collegiate a vibrant educational institution in the heart of Canada.

This remarkable university is continuously evolving to meet the innovations and challenges of the future while maintaining a tradition of excellence, accessibility and community partnership 

I am pleased to report the Foundation now stewards an endowment fund valued at over $70 million thanks to the generosity of our campus community, alumni and friends. Your continuing gifts and pledges to The University of Winnipeg Foundation are an investment in the present and the future. Gifts of all sizes help create and maintain unique academic programming, support scholarships and bursaries, and assist the university in having top-level facilities, learning equipment and cutting edge technology.

The Foundation is committed to fostering trust and accountability with our supporters and partners. Under the leadership and guidance of UWinnipeg's new President, Dr. Annette Trimbee, and our dedicated all-volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation will continue to work on behalf of the University and its students to increase capacity and stability. 

The Foundation strives to be innovative and responsive in our fundraising endeavors. From our new crowdfunding initiative to our Student Calling Program, we are fostering connections while upholding the University’s commitment to sustainability with tremendous success. 

Your interest in the University of Winnipeg Foundation and your understanding of the importance of private support, whether through a planned gift, a gift to endowment or current funds, is greatly appreciated. The University of Winnipeg has created a legacy of excellence we need to uphold; with your help I know we can achieve this.
