Will Week

We all have will power!

Having a valid, up-to-date Will, Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney ensures that your wishes will be met after your death. It also provides a great opportunity to make a charitable gift to a cause that's important to you.

Will Week, which takes place annually, is a series of free public presentations on the importance of Wills and estate planning. Sessions are presented, by professionals on a volunteer basis, as a public service and are for information purposes only.

Will Week takes place annually during the last full week of April.

Join us for Bequest 101

Learn about leaving a gift in your will to a cause you love at a free information session hosted by The Winnipeg Foundation where you can gather information, ask questions and hear inspiring stories, with no strings attached.

Learn how easy it is to:

  • Leave a bequest for a cause close to your heart
  • Create a personal or family legacy
  • Give as part of your estate plan (there are tax benefits!)

Session are two hour at The Winnipeg Foundation offices, 1350 One Lombard Place.

  • Tues, May 29 at 11:00 am-1:00 pm
