Background and Purpose
Created at The Winnipeg Foundation in December of 2001, the Moffat Family Fund represents a vision for “a Canadian society where all individuals have equal opportunities to develop their potential.” The Fund, which consists of the annual interest from a large investment, is directed to programs giving children and families an equal chance in society and is designated for distribution in communities where the Moffat family operated their media businesses – radio, TV and cable.
The funds are for charitable agencies and programs that fulfill the family’s vision. According to family spokesperson Randy Moffat, that vision is to create “tangible results in improved lives and realized potential for children and families who have not had the same good fortune and opportunities that my family and I enjoy.”
The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation (SSCF) is facilitating applications for these grants.
