The Museum moves any undesignated bequests, in memoriam, in honour gifts, and donations directed by donors as endowment gifts to The Manitoba Museum Foundation. Donors also have the option to donate directly to The Manitoba Museum Foundation Fund through The Winnipeg Foundation, where donations will be matched by The Winnipeg Foundation one dollar for every nine dollars donated.
