Premio Campo Fogolar
The fund was established with the proceeds from the sale of the Fogolar’s Property and Clubhouse, Campo Fogolar “Anola” which was located in Anola Manitoba. The property was purchased in 1973 fuflfilling the dreams of the members who wanted a permanent gathering place and headquarters for their organization. The property was purchased with funds donated by members who are now recognized as the Founding Members of Campo Fogolar. Unfortunately, it became difficult to maintain the property on a volunteer basis and ‘Anola” was sold in 2011.
Established in 2016, the Premio Campo Fogolâr is an award recognizing students who maintain excellent academic standing and achievement, and who are community service oriented. The annual Award is granted to a student (age 17-35) with origins from either Friuli-Venezia-Giulia or Veneto and who is enrolled in post-secondary studies or participating in a recognized cultural/academic program in Friuli Venezia Giulia/Veneto. The endowment was established with funds derived from the sale of Campo Fogolâr – the Fogolâr’s Centre in Anola, Manitoba. The purpose of the Premio is to immortalize the Fogolar establishing a living legacy which honours the resiliency, achievements, and heritage of its members. The award will be granted on an annual basis in perpetuity and administered by the Winnipeg Foundation.
