Moving into 2024

As we move into 2024 Rossbrook House Foundation reflects on 2023 while looking forward. 

The Foundation has three strategic goals broken into smaller projects. 


Goal – Nurturing Donor Relationships 

In 2023 Rossbrook House Foundation employed various friend-raising initiatives, including a Paint Day and Fall Gathering Luncheon, both in person at Rossbrook House. Foundation staff also attended networking events, such as Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce luncheons, to spread the word about Rossbrook House. 

Throughout 2023 the Foundation created personalized connections with donors, all while respecting their communicated contact preferences. One way this was done was through Board members calling 2023 donors throughout November just to say “thank you”. 

Goal – Alignment & Cooperation with Rossbrook House 

New in 2023, a fall joint meeting of the Boards of both Rossbrook House and Rossbrook House Foundation occurred. This meeting was a new opportunity for more cooperation and collaboration between the Rossbrook House Board and the Foundation Board. It allowed for the Board members to meet each other and learn about each organization. This meeting was such a success that there was consensus to implement it as an annual joint meeting moving forward. 

Goal – Share the Vision & Stories of Rossbrook House 

Early in 2023, Foundation staff collaborated with Rossbrook House Marketing and Communications Manager to create a communications toolbox for Board & staff.  This toolbox took the form of a SharePoint site to provide resources and was shared with Board & committee members of both Rossbrook House & the Foundation to ensure consistent information for all who advocate on behalf of Rossbrook House & the Foundation. 

Looking forward to 2024, work has already begun on various friend & fund-raising initiatives, and we’d love for you to be part of it. 

The easiest way is to advocate for Rossbrook House and the Foundation. 

  • Talk about Rossbrook House and the Foundation with your friends & family, including why you support and feel they’re important. 
  • Engage with us via social media. Every like, comment, and repost helps expand our audience. 
  • Ask friends & family to donate in support of Rossbrook House in lieu of purchasing you a birthday/anniversary/holiday present. 

We hope you grab a new-to-Rossbrook friend and join us at 

NEW initiatives for 2024 include: 

  • Winter 50/50 Raffle 
  • Direct ask in February – we know many people’s personal accounts are hurting in the current economy, however as the needs of our children & youth don’t lessen every gift, big or small, is appreciated.
