What is your giving capacity?

Gifts of all sizes make a difference, at virtually any charity you might choose to support. Here are some tools to help you find the giving level that is right for you. (Be sure to consult with your financial advisor regarding your unique situation.)

Rule of thumb: A quick guideline to help you determine a manageable giving level is two per cent of your annual income.

Gift calculator: Registered charitable organizations issues gift receipt for all contributions. That receipt can then be used to receive a federal and provincial tax credit on your annual Canadian income tax return. Calculate your tax credit.
