Manitoba Organization: Joseph Zuken Memorial Association

The Joseph Zuken Memorial Association was established in 1986 to honour the memory of Joseph Zuken. The Association was formed after his death to carry on his legacy of social activism by means of charitable contributions.

In accordance with its bylaws, three trustees are appointed, one by the President of the Manitoba Federation of Labour, one by the President of the University of Manitoba, and one by the Chief Executive Officer of the Law Society of Manitoba. The Association has a Steering Committee of not more than 20 members which makes recommendations to the trustees with regard to spending the income from the Joseph Zuken Memorial Trust Fund, which is administered by The Winnipeg Foundation.

Grants are made in support of charitable, educational and cultural activities that reflect Joseph Zuken’s interests and legacy. They are intended primarily for programs and projects carried out by non-profit organizations or individuals within Manitoba. Grants are not ordinarily made to support capital projects, operating expenses, annual fundraising drives, endowment drives, religious organizations, politicial parties, or medical or scientific research.

Starting in 1987, the Association has honoured individuals or groups which, in its view, have made a contribution to the community in keeping with Zuken’s interests.

The Association can be reached at:
