Wrap up the year by giving back!
The busiest season for charitable giving is upon us. Please mark your calendar and schedule time to make your year-end donations. We accomplished so much in 2016, and with your help can do even more in 2017.
As the end of the year closes in, time is running out on tax deductible donations. About 25% of Canadians take advantage of the sizeable benefits Canadian Federal and Provincials governments offer to Canadians who give to registered Canadian charities.
These tax incentive are significant, amounting to as much as 53% of your charitable donation. For many Canadians, it’s by leveraging these tax benefits that they can give more generously to charities. It makes them feel good and with their larger gift, it enables the charities they support to do more. Now, that’s a good thing!
First Time Donor’s Super Credit
The First Time Donor’s Super Credit offers you an over-and-above 25% one-time tax credit on your charitable gifts up to $1,000. It’s available to any Canadian who is new to charitable giving or has not claimed a charitable donation in the last five years.
