    • Bequests - Gift made upon death as specified in a bequest under a Will
    • RSP/RIF - The remaining capital value upon death of a beneficiary of a RIF. May be donated by making the Foundation a designated beneficiary of the residual funds.

Alternately, the Foundation may be named as sole beneficiary in which case the death benefit paid to the Foundation is reflected in the donor's terminal tax return.
    • Endowment Fund - May be established in the name of the Foundation with income flowing during the donor's lifetime, or following death if directed by his/her will.
