“Because community is something you create by sharing - sharing common interests, sharing what you have, and sharing your hope for the future.” - Patrice Yamada and Peri Venkatesh

A legacy gift can support the Cause you are passionate about. Choose your Cause, how you want to help, and a legacy gift will fulfill your future wishes.

What is a legacy gift?

A legacy gift is a future charitable gift through one or more of the following:

  • Will
  • Retirement assets
  • Life insurance
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Residual interest
  • Appreciated securities

Legacy gifts to The Winnipeg Foundation can be directed to an existing fund, or you can create your own endowment fund.

What is an endowment fund?

An endowment fund is like an investment account for our community. Gifts are permanently invested and a portion of the income earned (the spending policy) is distributed every year to local registered charities as grants.
