2020 Manitoba Philanthropy Award Recipients

Paul Soubry - Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser


Like most sought-after volunteers, Paul Soubry brings the same drive and passion to the causes he chooses to champion as he does to his day job: President and CEO of NFI Group.

Soubry brought unrelenting energy to his role as Chair of the Front and Centre campaign, Manitoba’s largest-ever fundraising campaign. His near-decade-long commitment led the university to a staggering achievement of more than $626 million raised to create opportunities for students, researchers and our community.

A devoted community volunteer, Soubry has had a hand in many other successful charitable efforts in Winnipeg, including St. Paul’s High School, Big Brothers of Winnipeg, and the Canadian Cancer Society. Soubry has an uncanny ability to inspire others to action, and that is why he is Manitoba’s 2020 Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser.

Paul Soubry was nominated for the Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser Award by the University of Manitoba.
