Will Bequest

Designating a planned gift in your will is a powerful way to leave a lasting legacy – one that will strengthen our capacity to meet future change head-on. Your future gift can be in life insurance, designated estate percentage, fixed dollar amount, marketable securities, or other assets.

Will Bequest Benefits

Maximum Impact

A bequest to leave a gift to RRC Polytech in your will does not affect your financial security or current cash flow. It may even position you to leave a larger donation in the future than is possible today.

Tax Deductions

Your estate will be entitled to a donation receipt for the full value of the bequest, which can significantly reduce the tax payable on your final income tax return.

Your Cause, Your Choice

Transform our learning and research spaces. Enhance our student experience. Advance Indigenous achievement. Amplify our impact. Support a specific program area. The choice is yours. You retain the power to change your bequest at any time as your plans or financial circumstances change.

Will Bequest Options

Specific bequests

Designate a fixed dollar amount or specific asset to RRC Polytech.

Residual bequests

Contingent bequests

Designate a bequest in the event of the death of any beneficiaries named in your will.

Testamentary trusts

Create a trust as part of your estate plans. Your assets will be distributed according to your terms, and support both your beneficiaries and RRC Polytech.
