The Community Foundation of Portage and District is a public foundation serving the charitable needs of donors and grant-seekers alike in the City and RM of Portage la Prairie. The contributions of donors, from all walks of life, are pooled into permanent, income-earning Endowment Funds which continue to grow in order to provide funding for local community priorities for many years to come.
What is the Community Foundation of Portage & District?
Smart & Caring Communities is a landmark effort that is bringing Canada’s community foundation movement together in response to the Governor General’s call for all Canadians to build a ‘smart and caring nation’.
Collectively we are working to ensure that every community has access to a community foundation by 2017, that communities across the country have access to dedicated resources, through Smart & Caring Community Funds, established specifically to respond to local priorities.
