RTAM established the Retired Teachers Endowment Fund with The Winnipeg Foundation in 2013 with an initial contribution of $50,000. This year the fund provided support for four $700 awards to recipients who were:
· relatives of an RTAM member
· involved in school and community activities
· Grade 12 graduates
· entering the first year of a post-secondary education program

There were 51 award applications submitted this year.

As retired teachers we place a strong value on education. Growing the Retired Teachers Endowment Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation would allow us to enlarge the size of the award available to each student. In the near future $1,000 per student is possible. RTAM could then possibly expand the support for its young people in their studies to include awards to students already enrolled in post-secondary education and those pursuing masters and PhD degrees.

Please consider assisting in the growth of the Retired Teachers Endowment Fund. The Winnipeg Foundation is the registered charity through Canada Revenue Agency and through The Winnipeg Foundation gifts to the fund are eligible for tax receipts. Contributions can be made through them by phone, mail or internet. A tax receipt will be issued by The Winnipeg Foundation for your contribution to the fund. Bequests in your will or a memorial contribution as part of your funeral arrangements are suggestions for your consideration.
