Let’s Continue To Support Nami Scholarship Fund, Thank You!

NAMI appreciates a model that guarantees funds to the scholarship for our youth in perpetuity. We sincerely thank those who have donated, and we also encourage others to do the same. All year round, we encourage people in our community to visit The Winnipeg Foundation website to donate with a minimum of $10 to NAMI Scholarship Fund at the link here to support our community youth education which was inaugurated last year. “Make this donation in celebration, honour or memory of someone.” Thank you! https://www.mycharitytools.com/gift/wpgfdn/donate?fund=1077

Our own Mrs. Rachel Alao, Order of Manitoba was also honored as NAMI’ outstanding community leader by Manitoba Government as she received the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Manitoba), which marked the 70th anniversary of the late majesty’s ascension to the Throne as Queen of Canada.
