Charitable Status

We are a Charity registered with the Canada Revenue Agency and as such file our annual financial returns with them each year to keep our Charitable Status in good order and allow us to provide charitable tax receipts for donations received. For more information see the CRA website by clicking on this link.

Charitable Receipts for donations made by cash, cheque, gifts or stock transfers

For these types of donations, we will issue income tax receipts provided the donation meets all of the criteria set by the Canada Revenue Agency. We do not issue charitable receipts for donations made by cash, cheque or gifts less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00). For online donations, the minimum for issuing charitable receipts is three dollars ($3.00) as the receipt issuing process is fully automated for us.
