Since it's launch in 2008, the Gilbert Plains Community Fund has been able to put $129,593 back into numerous projects within their community,

That includes over 21-thousand dollars that was presented to around 12 projects during their gala event on Saturday night.

"It is just a real testament to the value of the Community Foundation Movement, and we certainly appreciate the support and administrative leadership that we received from the Dauphin and District Community Foundation." said Gilbert Plains Community Fund chair Charlene Gulak. "It is that partnership approach that really allows our communities to flourish."

Gulak notes two particular funds that they manage.

 "The Gilbert Plains Personal Care Home Fund, as of 2024, will have granted out $17,896 annually to enhance the lives of residents at the care home.  We also have the Oksana and Quinn Dutchyshyn Memorial Fund, which was established as a legacy fund to support youth-related activities and projects in Gilbert Plains."

To date, the Dutchyshyn fund has gifted 37 hundred dollars back into the community.
