Why Gifts of RRSPs and RRIFs Matter

Children finger reading brailleMany of us may not be able to make a large cash gift to a charity we care about in our lifetime – after all, we need to take care of ourselves too.

But a gift of RRSPs or RRIFs allows Canadians to make an incredible impact in the work we do at CNIB, while ensuring their own security and lifelong income at the same time. 

Supporting vital programs and services

Your gift will be invested directly into programs and services that help Canadians with vision loss fully participate in life. 

There are currently more than one million Canadians living with blindness or significant vision loss. And because of our aging population, that number is growing fast. 

The demand on CNIB’s services has never been so great. But your gift of RRSPs or RRIFs will help us be there for all those who need us. 

What your gift can do 

  • Create a brighter future for kids, with one-on-one children’s services covering everything from literacy to social interaction.

  • Open doors to employment, through practical training in things like how to use a computer, write a résumé and track down job leads.
  • Give the opportunity for a full, active life, with programs that promote physical and emotional wellbeing. 

  • Help make prevention a priority, through projects that raise awareness about vision health and help prevent Canadians from losing their sight.

  • Fund research for a better world, designed to improve understanding of eye health and the needs of people who are blind or partially sighted.

  • Enable independence in everyday life, with practical support in everything from cooking to walking with a white cane.
