A planned gift is a charitable donation that can be arranged during your lifetime, but will be used by Ryerson in the future. Planned gifts often enable donors to make significant gifts while also fulfilling important tax and financial goals. The most common type of planned gift is a bequest, but there are others, including: charitable remainder trusts, gifts of residual interest, life insurance, and gifts of RRIFs and RRSPs.

It’s a great way to get more bang for your philanthropic buck. Double or even triple the impact of your gift to Ryerson University with the help of your employer.
