“Because the welfare of Winnipeg charities relies on the generosity and leadership of our citizens.”

– Elizabeth Alloway, The Winnipeg Foundation’s first Legacy Circle member

The Winnipeg Foundation’s Legacy Circle

Elizabeth Alloway is The Winnipeg Foundation’s first Legacy Circle Member. When she made her gift to The Foundation nearly 100 years ago, she didn’t know what our community would need in the future. But thanks to her foresight, she’s still giving back today.

The Winnipeg Foundation’s Legacy Circle honours people who have chosen to include a gift to The Foundation in their estate plans. Legacy Circle members are invited to an annual reception, receive special publications, and more.

When you give through The Foundation, you’re working together with fellow Winnipeggers to ensure our community’s changing needs will be supported For Good. Forever.

Your legacy gift can support one of your favourite Causes, or the most pressing needs of the day.
