About Us

For more than 2 decades The Westshore Community Foundation, Inc. has been a vehicle for the betterment of the community.

Our History

Incorporated in 1998, The Westshore Community Foundation Inc., was developed through the old Johnson Memorial Hospital District when it was replaced by the new Interlake Regional Health Authority. The formation of a community foundation was considered a good vehicle by which funds could be used to benefit the surrounding communities.

The Board of volunteers has continued to strive to build permanent endowments and other funds to support community projects. In just fourteen years the Foundation has reached $1,600,000 which in turn has provided sufficient interest to grant back into our communities.

It is the mission of The Westshore Community Foundation to continue to grow in order to offer even greater support to the ongoing needs of groups and individual dedicated to the betterment of the communities of Riverton, Gimli, Fraserwood, Winnipeg Beach, and Matlock. We believe philanthropy is alive and well in our areas and your contribution to the Westshore Foundation will provide a lasting legacy.
