Dakota-Community-Centre-Fundraising


Building Opportunities and Transforming Lives.  Your Donation Matters.

We are very close to reaching our goal for Phase I of the Dakota Campus Redevelopment Plan.   Now is the time to reach out to the wider community  - small business, associations, individuals, private funders – and ask you to help us meet and surpass our goal.   We are 80% there!  

Your donation matters very much, no matter what the amount.  We celebrate the spirit of giving and the investment of all donors and want to make this an inclusive celeration of our community and the future vision of where and how we live.  

Of utmost importance to the Board, Campaign Cabinet and Staff is that we respectfully honour, steward and celebrate the investment of all donors to the Dakota Futures Capital Campaign.

Multi-year pledge fulfillment schedules and donation options  

Multi-year pledge fulfillment schedules or other options such as a monthly or quarterly opportunities also make it easier to budget and plan for your own giving and stewardship.

For example, a $5,000 pledge over 60 months or 5 years equals $84 a month or $2.80 a day. We will work with you to make this work for your needs either as an individual or as a business owner.

Every Dollar Counts

There are a number of ways that everyone can participate in a meaningful way.  We have options for a planned gift such as a charitable donation tax credit or an estate gift.  We have a number of options to take advantage of that would suit your budget.  

Sponsorships are another way to leave a legacy with a number of opportunities that are still remaining for a business or family gift to make a difference.  Individual gifts or small business gifts of any size help us reach our goal. 

Matching Gifts

Many companies and small businesses have a policy and practice to match donations that their staff make to fundraising campaigns such as the Dakota Futures Campaign.  Ask your Human Resource department about your company policy and the procedure to follow. This is an easy way to increase the value of your gift and help us build our community for the future.   We salute a number of community-minded companies that have this policy and we encourage you to check with your company about their policy and practice.  Most companies will double or match your gift 2:1.

If you would like more information please email us at:  donations@dakotacc.com  or call us at 204-254-1010 ext 211.  

How to Donate

For your convenience, there are a number of ways to give easily. We have included a self-addressed envelope in the Fall 2017 newsletter that was dropped in your mailbox in late August. You can drop off your donation at the Community Centre, mail it in or call us to securely use a credit card. You can honor someone with your gift either as a memorial tribute or just to give recognition for someone's contribution to the community. Ask us how.   

Please note that charitable receipts will be issued by the City of Winnipeg, which is deemed the qualified donee.  All funds raised go 100% to Dakota Community Centre.  Cheques should be made out to "Dakota Community Centre." 

We sincerely thank you for your investment in Dakota CC, for now and for future generations.
