Donating all or a percentage of your retirement funds is an effective way to reduce the taxes payable by your estate. If World Animal Protection is named as the beneficiary, your estate will receive a tax receipt, which can be used to offset the tax burden on the estate
This is a great way to show your commitment and belief that every animal deserves a life worth living, that World Animal Protection can find long-term sustainable solutions to stop animal exploitation, cruelty and suffering.
Ways to donate
You can name World Animal Protection as the beneficiary on the following registered funds:
Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs)
Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs)
Registered Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSA)
The benefits of donating retirement funds
You retain the use of your registered funds for the duration of your lifetime, while making a significant gift in the future
Your registered funds are not part of your estate and will not be subject to probate costs or delays in settlement
A gift of registered funds can help offset the significant tax burden on your estate
Simple and easy to donate – obtain a change of beneficiary form from your financial institution
*We strongly recommend that you discuss this with the professional services of a lawyer, accountant or financial advisor to ensure that your financial goals are considered, your tax situation reviewed, and your planned gift tailored to best fit your circumstances.
