Shout Out To: Lloyd Jensen and Sue Werner

Announcing Urban Stable’s very own…(drum roll please)…Endowment Fund!

After the passing of their daughter Jenn, Sue Werner and Lloyd Jensen sought out meaningful ways to support youth. After attending a Winnipeg Foundation Community Learning Session they learned about the work we do at Urban Stable, unbridling youth potential. This led them to establish the Walter and Joan Werner Memorial Fund with The Winnipeg Foundation in memory of Sue’s parents. Lloyd and Sue wanted to honour Walter and Joan with a fund that would provide long lasting, meaningful assistance. 

Urban Stable has been designated to receive an annual grant from the Fund. As the Fund continues to grow more income will be generated and granted to Urban Stable each year. In addition, Lloyd and Sue intend to match the annual grant to help us even more. It is also their intention to add to the fund each year on October 14th to celebrate the day of Walter and Joan’s wedding anniversary and Joan’s birthday. What an amazing way to honour loved ones as well as support youth through Urban Stable! 

We are so grateful for the support Lloyd and Sue are providing the youth we serve at Urban Stable. Thank you a thousand times over! 

If you would like to join Lloyd and Sue in their support, maybe honour the memory of someone you love, you can add to the Walter and Joan Werner Memorial Fund through the Winnipeg Foundation here. All donations to the Fund are held in perpetuity by The Winnipeg Foundation to generate operating funds for Urban Stable.
