Birtle & District Foundation

 
 
 
 
Mission Statement

To give our citizens an opportunity to contribute and give back to their own community.

The Birtle and District Foundation is a Registered Charity which partners with local agencies, charities and community organizations to sponsor projects within the Town and RM of Birtle. Possibilities are as diverse as our community and may include Health, Youth, Recreational Facilities, Educational and Cultural Programs, Fire Department, Community Beautification, Food Bank and Christmas Cheer, to name only a few.

Giving Options

Each donation receives a charitable donation tax receipt for the value of the donation.

There are many ways that you can give. Each gift is special, and given with thought and care. That is why we treasure every donation that we get.

Your gift will GIVE back to the community each and every year because your donation is invested and only the interest from these investments is disbursed to worthy non-profit organizations in the community.

The options for giving back to the community through the Foundation are listed below:
  • Gift or pledge of money, investments or property
  • Wills and bequests: Individuals may provide gifts to the Foundation in their wills. A lawyer should be consulted when making a bequest.
  • Life Insurance: A contribution may be made through a gift of life insurance naming the Birtle and District Foundation as a beneficiary. An estate planner should be consulted.
  • Tribute or Memorial: A gift may be made in honour of a living person, organization, field of interest, or event or in memory of a relative or friend. The Foundation will acknowledge such gifts to the family or organization.
  • Multi-Year Pledge: You may make an initial contribution and a commitment to add to the initial donation over a period of years.
  • Monthly Contribution: Through your financial institute using a Pre-Authorized Transfer your set amount will be withdrawn automatically. You can give $1/day or any amount you wish.
 
Founders Club

Any donation of $1000 or more made in 2011 will be forever recognized and remembered by a plaque listing all of the founding donors. The plaque will be displayed in a prominent location within the Town. Donations can be made throughout the years and accumulate.
