RRSPs and RRIFs

Future Gifts Lead to Future Cures

Your thoughtfulness today will create healthier futures for patients in our community and around the world. Making a charitable gift of a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is simple. You can make a donation of all or a portion of any remaining retirement funds upon your death by naming the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health as a beneficiary on your plan.

Benefits to you:

  • This is a simple and inexpensive way to make a legacy gift.
  • This type of donation will result in your estate receiving a charitable tax receipt.
  • Gifts of retirement funds are not subject to probate. Therefore the charitable gift is paid out quickly.


For further information on how to name the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF, contact your plan provider.
