Tax receipts will be provided for any donations of $20 or more, and are sent out once a year for the previous year (e.g., 2021 donation receipts are sent in February 2022).
We encourage our neighbours interested in financially supporting us to consider donating via credit card our Online Giving Portal. Donors will receive a tax receipt instantly emailed to them, and it greatly reduces the amount of administrative processing for our small team of volunteers and staff.
If you are missing a tax receipt from this or any previous year, please contact Nick by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send it over. Please include information about your donation such as amount, when the donation was made, and cheque number (if possible). This information helps us to find your donation more quickly so that we can get it to you as soon as possible.
WHAT IS RECEIPTED?
Tax receipts may be provided for in-kind donations (donations of items rather than money) if they are new items and you have a receipt or invoice clearly stating the value of the items donated.
We generally do not provide tax receipts for donations of used items. We will only provide a tax receipt for used items if the items have first been appraised, and you provide proof of the appraisal value for our records so that we can provide this proof to the CRA if requested.
A NOTE TO FUNDRAISING PARTNERS: To ensure that we will be able to provide you and your donors with a receipt, please reach out to Nick via email at email@example.com to review best practices/requirements for accepting, tracking, and receipting of donations for fundraisers you are running in support of Carmichael Outreach. We do not automatically guarantee receipts for fundraisers that we do not run / collect payment for directly.
