President and CEO's Message

Javier SchwersenskyMessage from the President and CEO

On behalf of The University of Winnipeg Foundation team, we would like to thank you for stopping by our website. The Foundation is an arms-length, independent charity dedicated to managing endowment funds to support the University and the Collegiate.  The Foundation also manages a number of philanthropic initiatives to assist the University with its capital needs. From crowdfunding initiatives to large capital projects to communicating with our alumni across the globe, the Foundation is here to fuel the growth and sustainability of The University of Winnipeg.

We are a donor-centred organization, which means that this is YOUR foundation. We listen carefully to your ideas and expectations, and we work hard to make sure that the intentions and desires of our donors are recognized and implemented, working in coordination with our colleagues at the University. No gift is too small, no idea should be dismissed: everyone - students, staff, alumni or interested individuals and corporations - willing to support the University in any way are welcome to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Foundation also has a remarkable track record of prudent and successful investment decisions, with endowment funds generating an above-average rate of return. If you donate to our endowment fund to create a recurrent scholarship, bursary or award, or if you decide to leave a legacy gift, the monies received will continue to grow and serve its intended purposes in perpetuity.

Take a look around our site, and please don't be shy. If you want to chat with me or any other member of our team, send us an email and we will be in touch with you very soon.

In service,

Javier, and the entire Foundation team
