FOR GOOD, FOREVER please consider donating to the Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba Endowment Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation when you are considering either a bequest in your will, an “in memoriam” gift when someone close to you has passed away, or in deciding your charitable giving for the year.

RTAM established an endowment fund with The Winnipeg Foundation in 2013 with an initial contribution of $50,000.  Since then, this fund has provided support for four, $500.00 awards each year to Grade 12 graduates who are nominated by a relative who is an RTAM member.  The criteria for receiving an  award includes the student being; involved in school and community activities, enrolled in some form of post-secondary education, as well as academic achievement.  There has been an average of 40+ award applications submitted each year.
The four awards for 2017 will be $600.00 each, as investment interest and gifts made to the fund has given us more dollars for granting.  What better way for us to leave a legacy of “belief in education” to our following generations?  Each gift, no matter what amount, adds in perpetuity to the overall fund.  We have given our working lives to “education”, this is an opportunity to carry on the tradition.  “For Good. Forever”, The Winnipeg Foundation’s inspiring message, says it all!
