There are many ways to give and lots of potential tax savings:

  • Simple Cash Gifts - Charitable tax credit
  • Gifts in Kind - Charitable tax credit based on fair market value, if the market value is over $1,000, it’s best to get an independent valuation.

  • Life Insurance

Depending on setup:

  • Proceeds of RRSPs/RRIFS at Death - Proceeds of income donated as charitable donation
