Creative Retirement and the Winnipeg Foundation
The Winnipeg Foundation has successfully aided several community organizations in establishing their own endowment funds so that the interest generated can support the programs and services they offer. Creative Retirement Manitoba is enthusiastic about the possibilities of this method of income generation, and encourages you to donate to our Endowment Fund.
Donations designated solely to the Endowment Fund are eligible for tax credits. You may contribute now, or leave a gift through your will. There are many ways to do this.
For information on planned giving, please contact:
- The Winnipeg Foundation (204) 944-9474
