Leave a Gift in your Will

The Lloyd and Ferrally Society

The Lloyd and Ferrally Society recognizes those who have left a legacy gift in their Will to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. The Society was established in honor of RWB Founders, Gweneth Lloyd and Betty Ferrally, whose determination and spirit of initiative laid the foundation for what is today the longest consecutively operating ballet in North America. We are truly grateful to our donors who have chosen to make our story a part of theirs, allowing us to share their love of ballet with generations to come.

Legacy gifts to the Lloyd and Ferrally Society will ensure that the RWB continues to play a leading role in Canadian arts and culture by allowing us to develop world-class dancers and choreographers, engage award-winning set & costume designers and commission new and innovative repertoire. Every legacy gift, big or small, makes the future of dance and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet possible.

Ways to leave your legacy gift

Gift in your Will (Bequest)

You can make a gift in you Will for a specific dollar amount, percentage, or residue of an estate. Your estate receives a tax receipt for your gift, which can reduce taxes owing.

To establish a Bequest, please instruct your lawyer to include the following statement to your Will:

I give Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, located at 380 Graham Avenue, Winnipeg, Canada with the charitable registration number 11912 9302 RR0001, the sum of $ ____ or ____% of the residue of my estate to be used as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet may deem appropriate.

Retirement funds

You can name the RWB as the beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF, or TFSA. Your estate will receive a tax receipt that can offset taxes owing.

Gifts of Life Insurance

You can name the RWB as the beneficiary of an existing policy, donate an existing policy, or purchase a policy to donate. Each option includes tax benefits for your estate or during your lifetime.
