Crowdfund for local water projects - and double your impact!

Our grants program funds projects that improve water quality in Lake Winnipeg and its watershed. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of LWF supporters over the years, we have been able to award more than $230,000 in financial assistance to a diverse range of vital initiatives: from cutting-edge research on the lake to accessible water education in schools to practical stewardship projects on the land.

Now, we need your help to make this program bigger and better in 2017.

Starting today, we’re partnering with Small Change Fund on a new online crowdfunding campaign that gives lake-lovers the opportunity to directly support future freshwater projects. Our goal is to raise at least $3,000 by March 31 for our 2017 grants program – and we’re thrilled to have Desjardins Financial Security Investments Inc. onboard as a matching donor!

That’s right: Thanks to their support, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1,500 – doubling the impact of your contribution!

Our grants program provides much-needed financial support to people working on the front lines of freshwater protection. By donating to this campaign, you are leveraging the positive power of collaboration and making possible important research and innovative projects across Manitoba.

Click here to donate now and double your impact!

Important reminder: You must donate to LWF through the Small Change Fund site to have your donation matched.

Want to see the impact of our grants program first-hand? Join us in Winnipeg at FortWhyte Alive on March 22, World Water Day 2017, for a special event at which we’ll be announcing the successful recipients of our 2016 granting season. This is your chance to chat with the hardworking people behind these water projects!

LWF publishes a newsletter, The Watershed Observer, twice a year. Our most recent edition includes information on our emerging community-based monitoring network, details about groundbreaking microplastics research made possible through our grants program, and helpful tips on how you can speak up for water by reaching out to decision makers.
