CFS Foundation

Community Support to Fund Our Great Programs

The Child and Family Services of Western Manitoba Foundation Inc. (CFS Foundation) was created in 1991 as a way for philanthropic community members to support parents and caregivers in their rewarding and often challenging role of raising children.

The CFS Foundation is a private, not-for-profit charitable organization that raises funds to support family strengthening programs offered through the Child and Family Services of Western Manitoba (CFS of Western Manitoba) Agency. The Foundation’s mission is to fund programs which strengthen family life and help ensure the safety and security of children in Westman.

The CFS Foundation manages three main funds: the Elspeth Reid Family Fund, the Westman Rural Family Fund, and the General Family Fund.

The CFS Foundation thrives through generous gifts, donations and sponsorships from public, private, corporate and community contributors. Whichever fund or program you choose to support through the CFS Foundation, your donation stays in Westman to help protect children, strengthen families and build safe communities. It also shows your commitment toward making a positive change in the life of a Westman family and is an investment in the future of our communities.
