Community museums and archives can now access matching dollars from the new Manitoba Heritage Trust Program. Culture and Heritage Minister Cathy Cox says the Program will help heritage organizations build their own individual endowment funds to assist in their long term sustainability.
Eiligible organizations will be required to contribute a minimum of 25 hundred dollars to an established heritage trust and working in partnership with the Winnipeg Foundation the province will provide one dollar for every two dollars raised for the organization’s endowment fund. The province will guarantee support up to a maximum of 25 thousand dollars to organizations that raise 50 thousand dollars.
