    The ĢƵ (ĢƵ) established The Riel-Evate Endowment Fund in May 2019 in partnership with The Winnipeg Foundation. 

    The fund supports student success while investing in programs and initiatives in ĢƵ that positively impact the lives of students and their families.

    To date, support has been in the form of annual scholarships to a graduating student in each of our high schools and a student graduating from the Louis Riel Arts & Technology Centre.

    The Riel-Evate Endowment Fund Committee is comprised of leaders in the community and members of the ĢƵ Board of Trustees. 

    Our work is focused on increasing the endowment fund's size through soliciting donations and fundraising activities. 

    We believe in the power of community to elevate hope, success, and well-being, which drives our collective commitment, energy, and enthusiasm. 

    Proceeds from The Riel-Evate Endowment Fund will assist graduating students in their post-secondary pursuits and fund new or existing programs that support learning, mental health, and well-being.
