Donating Retirement Funds

UTS can be a named beneficiary on registered retirement plan documents. A tax receipt for the value of the investment gifted will be issued to the donor's estate and applied towards the final income tax return. You can avoid probate and gifts of RRSPs/RRIFs are less susceptible to being contested than a charitable bequest.

For more information on gifts of retirement funds, please contact Martha Drake, Executive Director, Advancement, by email at or by telephone at 416-946-0097.
