The Lake Winnipeg Foundation envisions a clean, healthy Lake Winnipeg and watershed now and for future generations. To achieve this vision, we support projects that improve water quality in Lake Winnipeg and its watershed. Our Stewardship, Research and Education Grants Program awards grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 , and covering up to 100% of eligible project costs, depending upon fund availability.
