Boissevain Foundation

24 hour giving challenge

We’re Building Boissevain

The Boissevain and Morton Foundation Inc. began in 1975 with the involvement of six community residents who were interested in not only seeing Boissevain grow and prosper, but also giving community minded citizens peace of mind when donating to a cause close to their hearts.

Today, the Boissevain & Morton Foundation manages over $3 million in donated funds sustained by individuals and families who care deeply about the future of our community. Our job is to make these funds grow so that they can flow back into the community to support a wide selection of charitable efforts.

Members of the Foundation disperse the interest collected into organizations and events which benefit the entire community. The Foundation awards grants once a year to non-profit organizations whose programs and services match the Foundation’s mission, values and grant making priorities. Our grants aim to improve the quality of life in our community for all. We support health, human services, arts and culture, environment, community development and service, education and training, and recreation.

A gift to this organization has an important difference – it keeps giving year after year. Generations have chosen the Boissevain & Morton Foundation as their philanthropic partner.

Tax deductible receipts are issued for all donations.

How can you participate?

The Foundation offers a range of options to serve every donor and virtually every interest. Your gift to the Boissevain & Morton Foundation is an expression of gratitude to the community and of your desire to benefit future generations. Your gift is never spent or used, it keeps on giving forever in your name.

The Foundation offers a variety of ways in which individuals, families or corporations may join in this exciting undertaking:

  • • a gift or pledge of money
  • • a bequest in a will
  • • a gift of life insurance by naming the Boissevain & Morton Foundation as a beneficiary
  • • a gift in memory of a relative or friend
  • • a multi-year pledge
  • • a gift in lieu of “Thank You” cards
Start a Family Legacy Fund
  • • Five years to reach contribuiton level of $5000
  • • Once fund is over $5000 you can decide to designate your fund to any community organization, Church, etc. or leave as undesignated for community granting purposes
  • • Everytime you make a contribution to the Foundaiton, no matter size of donation or for what reason it can be aded to your Family Fund.
Or a Field of Interest Fund
  • • Sports and Recreation
  • • Beautification
  • • Community Health & Wellness
  • • Education

Preferably your gift is left to the general charitable purposes of the Foundation; this ensures maximum flexibility in meeting the changing needs of the community. However, donors may also stipulate that the earnings from the gift go to a specific field of interest or designated charitable cause.

The Boissevain & Morton Foundation is extremely grateful to individuals who remember the Foundation in their estate planning through their Last Will and Testament, insurance policies or as a beneficiary of other investments.

Bequests, Thank You’s or a Memorial Gift
in Thoughtful Tribute


A memorial gift to the Boissevain & Morton Foundation can honour the memory of a deceased friend, relative or associate. Make a donation as an alternative to sending thank you cards from your anniversary, shower or wedding celebration or provide a loonie donation pot at the next anniversary or reunion, and make a donation to the Foundation in tribute to the honoured guests or special occasion. It is an eco-friendly way to express your message while helping your community at the same time. A Bequest can lend financial help in perpetuity to the Community, your Church, an Association, a Sports Facility, or General Charitable purposes of the Foundation. An income tax receipt will be issued for all gifts.

Memorial Gifts, Thank You’s and Bequests have a lasting value.
