Anthologie Project

Anthologie is a curated collection of books featuring local design, art, food, fashion & handmade wares in support of Winnipeg charities.

This a very special project for Ayoko Design, not only because it allows a small local business to raise money for the causes that are most important to us, but also because it facilitates our introductions and collaborations with Winnipeg’s diverse creative community. Not only do we have the great privilege of doing what we love best, we also have the honour of promoting Winnipeg’s incredible creative talent. 

Our fundraising goal is to make a $25,000 financial contribution to support each not-for-profit organisation listed below …

Throughout the year, Anthologie will host a variety of different pop-up events in the city. The format for each event will vary, however, each will include a fundraising component that will raise funds for our Anthologie Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation, which will provide an annual grant to several different charities in the Winnipeg community each year.

About The Winnipeg Foundation
The Winnipeg Foundation is For Good. Forever. They help people give back to our shared community by connecting generous donors with causes they care about For Good. They are an endowment-based public foundation, so gifts are pooled and invested, and the annual earnings are distributed back to the community Forever. Formed in 1921, they are proud to be the first community foundation in Canada. For more, visit
