CONNECT is a not-for-profit, charitable organization. We rely almost exclusively on funding from government partners to fund programs. A donation from you can enable us to enhance the programs and services we offer to people with intellectual disabilities. In the past, charitable donations have enabled us to participate in research projects, purchase equipment and support special projects.

CONNECT has also established an Endowment Fund, to which you can direct your donation. The Endowment Fund was set up to provide a long-term supplemental stream of funding for the organization, which would allow us to enhance current programming.

Contribute to CONNECT ‘s Endowment Fund

CONNECT has established an Endowment Fund which will increase the organization’s financial stability in years to come. The purpose of an Endowment Fund is to produce long-term financial benefits; contributions to the fund build the principle which is invested and over time, produces interest. As the principle grows, so does the interest, which will supplement CONNECT ‘s budget. As you can see, a contribution to the Endowment Fund literally is a gift that keeps on giving. The benefits will last for years and years to come!

The Winnipeg Foundation is administering the CONNECT Endowment Fund. Contributions of any amount can be made to the endowment fund.
