Bequests in a will are a popular choice for donors because they are relatively simple to create, easy to understand and to administer.
Life insurance is another great way to support Kidney Cancer Canada because of the minimal up-front investment. You may not be able to make a significant gift now, but it is a great way to leverage tax benefits to make a larger gift than you ever thought possible.
At the time of your death your Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP) and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFS) are considered income and taxed quite heavily. When you designate Kidney Cancer Canada as a beneficiary of your retirement funds you receive a charitable tax receipt to offset any taxes owed. The gift would go directly to our charity without being taxed or even needing to go through probate.
