ENDOWMENT FUND

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

Royal MTC was here yesterday, is here today and will be here for years to come thanks to the Royal MTC Endowment Fund in Honour of Artistic Director Steven Schipper. Your gifts inspire us to think big, develop young artists and share our passion with the community. You can make a donation today to invest in the bright future of Royal MTC

WHAT IS AN ENDOWMENT FUND?

An endowment fund is a long-term investment where the capital is held in perpetuity and the investment income is withdrawn annually. In 2017, the endowment fund was valued at just under $19 million and provided $861,219 to help produce professional theatre for all Manitobans to enjoy.

WHO MANAGES THE FUND?

The fund is managed by The Winnipeg Foundation, a community foundation that has been working to improve the city of Winnipeg since 1921. The Winnipeg Foundation accepts your donations online for the Royal MTC Endowment Fund in Honour of Artistic Director Steven Schipper.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP?

Royal MTC accepts gifts to the endowment to strengthen the existing fund and ensure the future of this theatre. Your donation makes a greater impact today because every dollar contributed before November 30, 2018 will be matched through the Canada Cultural Investment Fund.
