MAKING YOUR ENDOWMENT GIFT VIA THE WINNIPEG FOUNDATION...
A gift may be directed to any of the RWB’s funds at The Winnipeg Foundation. Memorial or Tribute Gifts can be made in honour of or in remembrance of a friend or relative, to mark a special occasion or to acknowledge someone’s achievement. The Foundation will mail a personal card to advise whoever you wish that you have made a gift for this purpose.
The Winnipeg Foundation can manage virtually any type of gift for charitable purposes; from cash, life Insurance and bequests to publicly traded securities. All gifts are promptly acknowledged with an official receipt for income tax purposes. Donors can give securely online at www.wpgfdn.org by clicking on the “Make a Gift to the Foundation” button and then either ‘searching’ for a specific fund name with the search function, or by typing in the name of a fund. Gifts online can be made any time.
Donors can also give In-person, by Mail or by Phone and are asked to provide the following gift information: name and address as it should appear on the official tax receipt, the name of the endowment fund to which you are giving, a phone number or email address where you can be contacted if there is a problem processing your gift and if you are giving to multiple funds, the specific amount to be allocated to each fund.
