to our funders & partners!
We couldn’t do it without you!
We’re very grateful for your ongoing support and encouragement.
The Winnipeg Foundation understands that starting a new organization is not easy and takes time. We are grateful that since 2011, they have provided start-up funding to hire a Summer Coordinator, develop an operations plan & manual and pay for operating costs such as insurance, computer program and website costs, picking supplies and equipment, promotional materials, etc.
Our Community Education Program where we partner with community organizations to host workshops and educate the general public on prairie fruit is possible due to the financial support of the Assiniboine Credit Union Sustainable Community Grant.
We’re eager to share what we’ve learned with other communities interested in starting Fruit Share chapters. Funding from MAFRA gives us an opportunity to run a pilot project with Brandon and Steinbach so that we can create a “How To Toolkit” complete with templates, forms, tools and resources.
We’ve learned that coordinating and scheduling harvests can be a bit tricky! A custom built, easy to use Harvest Management System is exactly what we need. A grant from the United Way along with Fruit Share fundraising and support from the Winnipeg Foundation makes the development of this system possible.
