Gift of RRSP / RRIF

 Did you know you can designate KidsAbility as a beneficiary of your Registered Retirement Income Fund?

Your registered retirement funds are amongst the most heavily taxed assets that you own. You can reduce your estate taxes by deciding to have the proceeds of your funds directed to KidsAbility Foundation. With your gift, you will help children and youth in your community.

By naming KidsAbility Foundation as the designated beneficiary of your registered retirement saving plan (RRSP) or registered retirement income fund (RRIF):

  • Proceeds from your funds are handled as a charitable donation,
  • Proceeds from your funds pass directly to the beneficiary and not through your estate,
  • You receive a tax receipt from KidsAbility Foundation which helps to offset estate taxes.

A direct beneficiary designation of your RRSP or RRIF is simple and easy to do by requesting the appropriate form from your advisor. For more information on how you can make an impact this way the experts at BDO can help at

To help you in your planning we offer Sample Bequest Wording and a Letter of Intention to help guide you through the process. You can also access and download our Legacy Giving Brochure. If you have any questions, I invite you to connect with me.
