Women's College Hospital Foundation - Registered Retirement Savings Funds (RRSPs or RRIFs)

Registered Retirement Savings Funds (RRSPs or RRIFs)

Retirement funds can be the most heavily taxed assets you own. However, when Women’s College Hospital Foundation is designated as a direct beneficiary of a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) or registered retirement income fund (RRIF), these taxes are offset at the time of death. Your gift will be treated as a charitable donation and Women’s College Hospital Foundation will issue a tax receipt for the full amount being transferred.

The gift is simple to make - name Women’s College Hospital Foundation as a direct beneficiary on the plan document and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change.

Please note: Gifts from a Retirement Savings Plans and Retirement Income Funds transferred directly to a registered charity during the donor’s lifetime are not eligible for a charitable tax receipt at this time.
