Sons and Daughters of Italy Legacy Fund

In 2018, as part of our mission to assist the leaders of tomorrow — our youth — Sons and Daughters of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge created a fund targeted to education.  This fund, the Sons and Daughters of Italy Legacy Award, will forever support the education and aspirations of our youth.

Each year, we will be giving an award from this fund, to a deserving student of Italian descent entering or attending post-secondary education.  Initially, this annual award will be $2,000 but the award will grow as the fund grows.

Your gift is tax deductible 

Your support will help us grow the legacy award so that we can add additional student awards each year.   In addition, you will receive a tax deduction!

Where does the money go?

Each year, Manitoba students of Italian descent can apply for the award.  A committee reviews the applications, and based on prescribed criteria (scholastic achievement, community involvement, need, etc.).  The successful candidate will be awarded a cheque for $2,000, a certificate of achievement, free enrolment as a Sons and Daughters of Italy member and two tickets to attend our annual gala!    

Donate to the Legacy Fund

We need to add $50,000 to our Legacy Fund to allow us to give an award to another deserving student.  Your donation can be public (and we will thank you) or anonymous (and we will appreciate you).

Donations are made to our fund administrator, The Winnipeg Foundation, through a secure online donation:


For donations over $20 to our fund, they will issue a tax receipt.
