Estate and Bequest Fulfillment

We are honoured to be a part of each donor’s generous legacy to help our community.

If you are the executor or lawyer of an estate that has left a bequest to The Winnipeg Foundation, we can help you fulfill the donor’s thoughtful wishes to give back.

The information required to process the bequest depends on if The Winnipeg Foundation is named as a Specific Value Beneficiary or Residual Beneficiary.

Specific Value Beneficiary
A dollar amount is designated to The Winnipeg Foundation.
Information required:

  • Copy of the Will, or section of the Will that names The Winnipeg Foundation as a beneficiary.

Residual Beneficiary
A percentage of the residue of an estate is designated to The Winnipeg Foundation.
Information required:

  • Copy of the Will
  • Copy of the Inventory of Assets (prepared as part of the Application for Probate)
  • Final Estate Accounting

It is important to us to know as much as we can about our generous donors. If you could share any information, biographical or otherwise, we truly appreciate learning more about them.

Send the required information and cheques, payable to The Winnipeg Foundation, to:

Attn: Jennifer Litchfield, JD
1350 – One Lombard Place
Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 0X3
