SMD Foundation is the fundraising member of the SMD family, working to raise two equally important things: funds and awareness. As the official provincial affiliate for Easter Seals™ Canada, SMD Foundation also conducts activities under the Easter Seals™ Manitoba banner.
Fundraising is essential to maintaining, expanding and improving the SMD programs and services so many Manitobans living with disabilities depend on. Awareness is vital in promoting a greater understanding of disabilities, which gives people a compelling reason to give.
Everyone knows someone with a disability. It may be a friend, a neighbour or a member of the family. It may be someone with a physical disability that they’ve had since birth or that is the result of an injury. It may be someone with an invisible disability such as Deafness or a chronic condition. It may be someone very young or an older person who has developed an age-related disability. No matter what a person’s age or disability might be, SMD Foundation/Easter Seals™ Manitoba is there, supporting the programs and services that support others.
