THE GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA'S NEW COMMUNITY SPIRIT PROGRAM
Exciting news for ACTSS and other Non-Profit & Charitable organizations
Albertans are already some of the most giving and generous people anywhere, and as an organization that relies on that vibrant giving spirit to carry out our important work, ACTSS wants to tell you about a new program that could make it even more worthwhile to support your favourite non-profit or charitable organization. When you make a donation to a Canada Revenue Agency-registered charity like ACTSS, you will receive a non-refundable charitable tax credit when you complete your annual income tax return. When the provincial and federal charitable tax credits are combined, Albertans now receive a 50-cent non-refundable tax credit for every dollar donated over $200.
For example, if you donate a total of $500 to four or five charities over the year, you will receive a combined federal and provincial charitable tax credit of $200. This means that the donations would cost you about $300, which is the equivalent of donating 82 cents a day, or about the cost of buying a newspaper. As a result of the enhanced tax credit, you may consider donating more to your favourite charities.
More support from you also means there is a greater opportunity for ACTSS to obtain a provincial grant to support our work in the community. The donation grant component of the Community Spirit Program allows organizations like ACTSS to apply for and receive a donation grant based on total eligible cash donations donated by individuals over a 12-month period. Organizations must have received a minimum of $1,000 in total cash donations in order to be eligible to apply. The more cash donations we raise, the better chance we have of receiving a grant to support our operations, as well as the delivery of programs and services.
Your donation counts! Through your support you are helping our community become stronger and more vibrant.
