What type of planned gift is right for you?


Gift in Your Will
Leaving a gift in your will is easier than you might think. It’s the most popular and easiest way to make a future gift. It has no effect on your current income and significantly reduces the taxes payable by your estate. Your gift can be a specific amount, stocks or securities, or a percentage of your estate.

Life Insurance
You can designate GRH Foundation as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary on an existing life insurance policy and your estate will receive a tax credit. Or transfer ownership of an existing life insurance policy over to us and receive a tax receipt for your annual premiums.

Retirement Plans (RRSPS/RRIFs)
You can designate GRH Foundation as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary on your residual RRSPs and your estate will receive a tax credit.  This is an excellent way to reduce taxes on your estate.
