Manitoba Heritage Trust Program


Lac du Bonnet District Museum has partnered with The Winnipeg Foundation to establish a permanently endowed Manitoba Heritage Trust Fund to support our mission: “working in the present while preserving the past for now & the future.”


Until March 31, 2021, the Province of Manitoba will stretch gifts to this fund. Every $2 given during this period has the potential to be stretched by an additional $1, to a maximum of $170,000. This means a gift of $2 becomes $3.


The Winnipeg Foundation will generate the tax receipts for all gifts directed to this fund under the Manitoba Heritage Trust Program.
Gifts to this fund are invested in perpetuity and the annual income generated is distributed to the Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society to be used at our discretion.


To help us grow our endowment fund and continue to preserve and promote our community’s history, please consider making a donation today.

Thank you to anyone who has contributed to the Trust Fund. We appreciate your support.

The Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
