Making the Choice that’s right for you and yours
There are a number of charitable gift options that can be made through your will, or as part of your estate plans.
Bequests are gifts that you leave through your will to your beneficiaries (family, friends, charitable cause), such as a sum of money, portion or balance of your estate, or a particular property. Learn more
Charitable gifts of life insurance are unique because they provide you with the ability to make a more significant future gift by way of more affordable monthly premiums, and they can be customized to fit within your charitable giving and estate plans. Learn more
Naming a charity as the beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or RPP is a savvy way to reduce your estate taxes while maintaining control and benefiting from your registered account during your lifetime. Learn more
Donations of Trust (cash, securities, real estate) are ideal for donors who need to retain use of their assets or provide income for surviving loved ones. Once the trust terminates, all or a portion of the remaining funds is received by the charity. Learn more
“I give to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation (the sum of $_____, or a portion of my estate, or the whole or a portion of the residue of my estate, or other property) to be used for the priorities of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.”
