A legacy gift is a great way to make an impact helping others and giving back to your community. For more information on planning and preparation of a legacy gift please call the Development Department at (416) 438-6880.

Here are some things you can do to establish your own legacy:

  1. Prepare a will. Without a will you lose control over your property at death.
  2. Leave a gift in your will for the not-for-profit organizations of your choosing.
  3. Name a not-for-profit as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or pension.
  4. Name your favourite not-for-profit as the beneficiary of an existing or paid-up life insurance policy.
  5. Ask your financial or estate planning advisor to include charitable giving as part of their counsel to clients.


Recent changes to federal tax law are allowing an even greater incentive to making charitable gifts using appreciated, publicly listed securities. These significant changes have eliminated the taxes due on capital gains when securities are gifted directly to a charity. By donating securities to a charity like Rosalie Hall, you get a full tax receipt for the value donated AND eliminate the tax due on any capital gain in the securities. The greater the gain, the greater your tax savings will be.

How can charitable donations reduce my income tax?

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulates charities registered under the Income Tax Act in Canada. Under the Act, donations to registered charities can help to reduce your individual income tax. Tax credits are calculated as a percentage of the amount you donate in a given year.

Generally, you can claim all or part of your donations up to a limit of 75 percent of your net income. You may also be eligible for a provincial tax credit for your donations. The amount of the provincial tax credit varies between provinces. You can also combine your receipts with your spouse and have only one person claim the entire amount.

Registered charities can issue official receipts for income tax purposes. You can verify if a charity is registered using the CRA Charities Listings, which is an online, searchable database of all registered charities in Canada. The Charities Listings is available on the Canada Revenue Agency Web site at

Rosalie Hall operates under Charitable Registration Number 107913576 RR0001.
