Other planned giving options
A gift in your will is not the only way to remember the animals and the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society in your estate plans. There are other options available to you. We recommend you work with your professional advisors to choose what makes the most sense for you, your loved ones, your estate and tax planning.
Make a Gift of Life Insurance
Gift of real estate
Create a charitable annuity
Give the gift of registered funds
You may choose to designate the Ontario SPCA as a beneficiary of a registered fund, like an RRSP or RRIF, or even a TFSA. Because income from funds such as these become taxable upon death, leaving them to the Ontario SPCA generates a donation credit that can almost eliminate the taxes.
There are two ways to make this type of donation – designating the Ontario SPCA as the beneficiary or donating the proceeds of the fund through your will. We recommend that you ask your advisor which option is best for you.
For more information on any of these planned gift vehicles, please talk to us – we’d love to hear from you.
