Westland Foundation has partnership agreements with RRC Polytechnic, University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and The Winnipeg Foundation.

The partnerships with the three post-secondary institutions are based on separate agreements whereby:

  • Each partner holds Education Funds in endowment at their institutions.
  • The interest earned from the endowments will fund the scholarships on an annual basis.
  • The three partners have contributed matching funds to the portion of the Education Fund endowment held at their College or University.
  • Each partner provides the ongoing collaboration and coordination required to implement the scholarship awards at their respective institutions.

The partnership with The Winnipeg Foundation is an agreement whereby:

  • Westland Foundation contributes dollars to an endowment fund held at The Winnipeg Foundation.
  • Westland Foundation is able to draw upon the interest earned from the endowment, enabling the Education Fund to offset financial commitments at any of the partnering post-secondary institutions.

Our four partnership agreements are invaluable to ensure the Westland Foundation Education Fund scholarships for inner-Winnipeg students are maintained and successfully granted annually.
