The Elmwood High Legacy fund

“… allow yourself to dream, you can do anything.”
– Clara Hughes, Olympian, Elmwood High alumna

The Elmwood High Legacy Fund was established in 2008 to help students in financial need to pursue their post-secondary education dreams. Initial funds were raised during Elmwood High’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

The fund is administered through The Winnipeg Foundation.
