Polly and Derek Riley Fund - In memory of J. Derek Riley

Derek Riley C.M., LLD. established this fund in 1997 to support Winnipeg, the community he loved. Born in Winnipeg, Derek became an Olympic athlete, a war veteran, a businessman, and a philanthropist of the highest order. His unassuming generosity has improved the lives of Manitobans through organizations such as the Assiniboine Park Conservancy, Canadian Museum for Human Rights, United Way, The Winnipeg Foundation, University of Manitoba, and Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. Derek died on May 6, 2018 at the age of 95.

Your gift will be pooled and invested with the generated income distributed as grants to local registered charities. As the original gift remains invested, your contribution will continue to benefit the people of Winnipeg in perpetuity.
