I am fortunate to speak daily with charities. I’m continuously inspired by the vital work done by charities, small and large: helping people, protecting animals, and making our communities, country and world a better place. At times, I am also overcome by the tremendous need. Did you know that over 80% of registered Canadian charities receive less than $100,000 a year in donations?
As the 11:59 pm December 31st tax deadline quickly approaches, I hope you will give generously to a charity if you are able to do so. Every gift makes a difference and can significantly reduce your tax bill. Visit www.canadahelps.org/taxtime to learn more and calculate your tax savings. Your gift could reduce your 2014 tax bill by*:
• Up to 35% of your donations totalling $200 or less
• Up to 53% of your donations totalling more than $200
This year, as you make your end of year gifts, please also consider supporting CanadaHelps. As a charity ourselves, we provide more than 15,000 charities with the online fundraising tools, technology and education they need to succeed. Your generous donation will help us meet the growing needs of charities that rely on our services.
Thank you for your kindness, compassion, and your support throughout the year.
President and CEO, CanadaHelps
