Video: Learn more about our grants program

You are here

Our grants program invests in solutions by supporting projects dedicated to improving local water quality: from cutting-edge research on the lake to accessible water education in schools to practical stewardship projects on the land.

This video celebrates just some of the passionate water champions who are working on solutions for our shared waters. (Click here to learn more about the four grant recipients selected through our most recent submission process.)

LWF’s grants program is funded by the generosity of our supporters who share our vision of a clean, healthy Lake Winnipeg and watershed, now and for future generations. Thank you to all our donors for making this program possible!

If you’d like to invest in local water solutions, please consider donating to our online crowdfunding campaign! Running until March 31, 2017, all money raised through this campaign will directly support future water projects. Even more exciting? Desjardins Financial Security Investments Inc. is matching all donations dollar for dollar until we reach $3,000! This is a great opportunity to leverage the positive power of collaboration and double your impact!
