5 years ago I had a vision to start an endowment fund for HMC that would allow us to give back in perpetuity. At the time I had no idea how I would come up with the money to make it happen but what I did know is where there is a will there is a way. After a phone call to the Winnipeg Foundation I had found a way and with the will and donations of many HMC members (5 years later) the HMC sharing circle has grown to $43,000 which creates an annual gift of $1500. And this is only the beginning.
My goal is to continue to grow the fund each and every year and leave a legacy from the monkeys to always give back. Who knows one day what it can become.
So what does this mean? What am I asking?
As a member of HMC, there are almost 300 of us! I need your help to continue growing our fund and making a difference. This is our way of giving back.
$5, $10, $50, $100 it all adds up over time and BAM! We are making a significant difference for women in our community.

Bravestone Centre has been the recipient of our gift since inception. Here is a little part of their thank you letter:
“We feel very fortunate to have your support and know that your endowment dollars make it possible to provide the valuable support services to the families in our program. Thank you for being a partner with us in supporting women and children as they rebuild a safer and better tomorrow.”
Let’s keep this fund growing and making a difference. All gifts are processed and managed by the Winnipeg Foundation and will receive a tax receipt. Please consider making your annual gift to the HMC Sharing Circle and making a positive difference in our community.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas season and all the best in 2017.
Thank you for believing in HMC and creating a positive, healthy life for all.
