Gift in Your Will

Make the Janeway Foundation a beneficiary

of your RRSP/RRIF

Helping to give our children their childhoods back



Retirement funds are potentially one of the most highly taxed assets you own.  At the time of your passing, if you do not have a surviving spouse to receive your RRSP or RRIF, all money invested in these funds must be declared as income, with all applicable taxes coming from your estate.

However, by designating the Janeway Foundation as a direct beneficiary of your RRSP (registered retirement savings plan) or RRIP (registered retirement income fund) these taxes are offset at the time of your passing.  Your gift will then be treated as a charitable donation with tax receipts issued for the full amount, thereby helping to offset any other taxes that your estate may have to pay.

The proceeds from the RRSP and RRIF would be paid directly to the Janeway Foundation without having to go through probate, saving your estate the cost of probate fees as well.

If you are considering a gift of RRSP/RRIP Funds to the Janeway Foundation, we encourage you to explore the various donation options with your financial and legal advisors, ensuring that your future gift is as tax effective as possible and takes your family needs into consideration.
