Other Types of Estate Gifts

There are many other ways to make a transformative contribution to Bruyère. Below you’ll find a few option.



Next to personal real estate, registered retirement funds are the most important investment for Canadians. Many people choose to eliminate deferred taxes by naming charitable organizations as final beneficiaries.

If you choose to name the Bruyère Foundation as a direct beneficiary, contact your RRSP/RRIF/TFSA sponsor (your bank, investment trust, or insurance company) to determine if a change of beneficiary form needs to be completed.


Donating appreciated securities is simple, cost-effective and the most tax-efficient way to make a charitable gift.

You can make a charitable gift of securities by using any one of the following types:

  • Prescribed bonds
  • Units of mutual funds
  • Exchange traded funds (ETFs)
  • shares
  • Warrants and futures that are listed on the stock exchanges prescribed by Canada Revenue Agency.

We’re here to help.
