Tax Benefits of Making a Donation
The Surrey School District is a registered Canadian Charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. We provide tax receipts for cash donations over $25. (Read more) "In kind" donations (gifts of goods or services), will first be appraised to determine fair market value and then a tax receipt may be issued.
The Canadian income tax system encourages gifts to charities by granting tax credits to individual donors (corporations may claim deductions). For annual donations under $200, you will receive a tax credit of about 22 cents per dollar donated. For donations exceeding $200, you receive even more – about 43 cents for every dollar donated.
These are federal and provincial tax credits. The provincial tax credit varies depending on the province in which you live. We encourage you to consult with a qualified financial advisor for the most accurate information regarding your personal taxation situation.
