Individuals & Families

The OCH Foundation created several methods of giving for individuals and families – ensuring you are able to give in ways that suit you best.

Methods of giving

Charitable bequest – A gift made by will.

Life insurance  – Transferring ownership of life insurance or naming an organization as the registered beneficiary are easy means of supporting a cause close to your heart.

RRIF/RRSP contributions  Gifts of RRSPs and RRIFs are a tax-smart and effective method of transforming these retirement funds into community support.

Stock & securities – A tax-effective means to give is a donation of stocks, bonds or mutual funds.

Charitable Remainder Trust – A preferred choice for those looking to give cash or assets but also seeking the tax benefit now.
