Tax receipts will be issued for all monetary donations. The receipts will normally be issued when the donation is received.
- For donations to branches, the tax receipt and a letter of appreciation will be sent to the donor. The treasurer will send a cheque to the branch treasurer.
- For donations to branch projects, the tax receipt and a cheque will be forwarded to the branch. The branch will send the tax receipt and a letter of appreciation to the donor.
Non-monetary donations are allowed under Canada Revenue Agency regulations. However, the Canada Revenue Agency recommends that this type of donation be made by an exchange of cheques. In other words, the Association will pay the donor for the material donated and the donor will write a cheque to the Association for the same amount. This provides a clear paper trail for audit purposes.
