News Release: Matching Funds

UDATED: November 25, 2021

Help Us Earn Matching Heritage Trust Funds

As a Manitoba Heritage organization which has met the requirements of the Manitoba Heritage Trust Program, financial donations to the Manitoba Curling Hall of Fame & Museum (MCHoF&M) are eligible to earn a 50% bonus in matching dollars.

Under terms of the Manitoba Heritage Trust program the Manitoba Curling Hall of Fame & Museum has established a Foundation account under the administration of the Winnipeg Foundation. Interest generated annually is paid to MCHoF&M to be used to help meet annual operating costs.

In Level 1 of the program, donations up to $50,000, are eligible for matching under the province’s Heritage Trust Program at a rate of $1 for each $2 donated.

To date, contributions to the Foundation account have meant about $19,000 in matching funds have been received. Including the money invested in the Foundation account from MCHoF&M general revenues, the account currently totals just over $58,000.

Thanks to the supporters of the 2020 Notable Teams and Performance Certificates projects, MCHoF&M was in a good short-term financial position. This has allowed the Board of Directors to commit resources for investment in the Foundation.

In Level 2 of the program, which takes effect when the matching funds reach a total of $25,000 paid to MCHoF&M by the program, the matching program will continue indefinitely. The matching amount will be prorated, up to $1 for each $2 donation, until the provincial funding committed to the Heritage Trust Program is
exhausted.
