The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate's tax burden. Gifts of Life Insurance When you donate a life insurance policy, you are providing a substantial future gift for Habitat for Humanity Manitoba. Your regular monthly payments toward a life insurance policy over several years is multiplied into a much larger financial contribution in the future. Gifts of Retirement Plan Funds Making Habitat for Humanity Manitoba a primary or co-beneficiary of your registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) or registered retirement income fund (RRIF) will enable you to support Habitat Manitoba and reduce the amount of taxes that your estate would otherwise have to pay.
