Donating your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP’s) or Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIF’s) is a valuable way to contribute to JDRF while offsetting taxes at the time of death. These assets are among the most heavily taxed. At the time of death, the plan is cashed and creates a tax liability for your estate, however if you designate JDRF as a beneficiary of the RRSP or RRIF you offset these taxes and your estate saves probate fees. A charitable tax receipt will be issued to your estate when the donation has been received. These gifts are protected from creditors, claims against your estate and will challenges.
