Donor Opportunities

How donations can help save you money

Donations to charity reduce federal and provincial taxes in the form of a credit against taxes payable. In Ontario, individuals receive combined federal and provincial tax credits at the rate of approximately 23% on the first $200 of donations in a year, and 48% for donations in excess of $200 in a year.

The system rewards extra giving. The more you give, the larger your tax credit and the less income tax you pay.

Here are some examples of tax savings for a single taxpayer under the age of 65.
