How you can help
Tom Castor from Missionfest says that while the organization is in good shape financially, but like all mission organizations greatly benefit from the generosity of like-minded individuals.
MfM is a registered Canadian charity and support for Missionfest Manitoba benefits the work of the more than 100 mission organizations (mission agencies, schools, camps, relief organizations) who are exhibitors at Missionfest Manitoba 2022.
People can donate online through the Missionfest Manitoba website.
