Build 150 Progam

The Altona Community Foundation (ACF) is excited to offer non-profit organizations in Altona and the Municipality of Rhineland (excluding Plum Coulee) even more opportunity to secure funding during its upcoming Spring 2020 Granting Period in April.


ACF is participating in the Build 150 Program which will provide matching dollars to projects selected during the Foundation’s Spring 2020 grant intake period. In total, ACF will have $40,000 to disburse into the community ($20,000 in matching dollars from the Build 150 program, and $20,000 in interest from ACF’s Endowment Fund).

The Build 150 program will provide approximately $1.2 million for projects that will leave a lasting legacy in communities across the province, and is one of three programs created to recognize Manitoba’s 150th birthday in 2020. Applicants will submit their ideas for infrastructure, or “bricks and mortar” projects, to their local community foundation. Endow Manitoba is helping coordinate the Build 150 program.

“We know there are a lot of great ideas in our community that need a funding boost to get off the ground. With the matching dollars available in our upcoming Spring 2020 grant intake via the Build 150 program, we wanted local organizations to start dreaming now about what could be, in time to apply,” explained ACF president Chris Sumner. “The $40,000 ACF will distribute this Spring will be the most the Foundation has given back in a single granting period, and we’re excited to see what projects are submitted for funding consideration.”
Applicants can submit their Spring 2020 applications between April 1 and 30. Grant application forms are available on the ACF website.
