Manitoba Ag Days Gives Back $26,000 Annually

In the fall of 2015 Manitoba Ag Days announced the “Ag Days Gives Back” community giving program.  100% of the 50/50 funds raised at the show, which runs from January 22 to 24th at Brandon’s Keystone Centre, will go back to ag organizations and communities where exhibitors and patron’s live.  “We want to give back some of the show’s success to those exhibitors, patron’s and communities which contribute to our show.  This year we had a tremendous response and received so many fantastic applications. It is great to see some many initiatives happening in the rural communities across Manitoba.  The hardest part is picking just one, we want to help all of them!”. Stated General Manager Kristen Phillips.   To date over $130,000 has been given back through the Manitoba Ag Days Gives Back fund to deserving communities and organizations across Manitoba. The application deadline for 2020 is November 15th, 2019.
