Rainbow Day Nursery Inc. is a registered charity operating under charitable registration number 104384771 RR0002. As a funded facility, our fees are regulated by the Province of Manitoba, which results in a limited revenue stream. We therefore welcome the additional support of parents and community members, and offer the following information for those who wish to support Rainbow through charitable or other donations.
If your workplace takes part in an annual United Way campaign, you can choose to direct your donation to Rainbow Day Nursery Inc. Complete the workplace pledge form as normal, and then include Rainbow's name and charitable registration number (104384771 RR0002) in the optional "My Gift THROUGH United Way" section to indicate which portion of your contributions should be directed to Rainbow.
United Way will issue a tax receipt to you for donations of $20 or more. In the case of payroll deduction, your donation will be reflected on your T4.
Please note that United Way charges a $12 cost recovery fee when you select donor directed giving.

Rainbow's Fundraising Committee works hard to plan and organize a variety of events to ensure we can afford to provide our children with enhanced programming experiences like excursions and special visitors at no additional cost to families. Information about these events is shared with parents and guardians throughout the year.
In addition to specific fundraising events, Rainbow's Mabel's Labels fundraiser is ongoing and can be supported at any time. Click the button below and search for Rainbow Day Nursery (Winnipeg), then get shopping!
