Gifts of RRSPs and RRIFs (Registered Retirement Savings Plans and Registered Retirement Income Funds)

Gifts made through RRSP's (registered retirement savings plans) and RRIF's (registered retirement income funds) are a great way to offset taxes at the time of death. By naming the Michael Garron Hospital Foundation directly as the beneficiary your estate saves probate fees. A charitable tax receipt is issued when the donation is received and can be used on your final tax return or the one immediately preceding it.

Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact Debbie Owen our Planned Giving Officer at (416) 469-6580 ext. 2161 or by email at

If you have already included us as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF, please contact Debbie and let her know.
