Enhanced Charitable Tax Credit

Did you know that if you donate more to registered charities like the Centre for Family Literacy, you now have an opportunity to receive a higher tax credit on your income tax return? As part of the Alberta government’s new Community Spirit Program, the combined provincial and federal charitable tax credits gives Albertans a 50-cent tax credit for every dollar donated over $200.

For example, if you donate a total of $500 to several charities throughout the year, you would receive a non-refundable tax credit of $200. This means your donations would cost you about $300.

In addition to the higher tax credit, your donation also creates an opportunity for the Centre to obtain a provincial grant to support our work. The donation grant component of the Community Spirit Program allows our organization to apply for a grant based on the amount of money donated by individuals over a 12-month period.

The more funds we raise, the better chance we have of receiving this grant to support our family literacy programs and services.

Your donation will help ensure that parents can provide their children with positive early learning experiences.

A gift to the Centre will make a lasting difference!
