Canada Revenue Agency Official Tax Receipts
Canadian charities can provide Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) approved electronic receipts to donors. These are auto-generated with each approved donation when enabled. Organizations can customize the receipts with your organization’s branding and information.
According to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), tax receipts can only be sent for donations where the donor did not receive goods or services in exchange. The system will automatically detect the kind of donation the donor made on your fundraiser and send them a tax receipt accordingly.
Examples of CRA eligible donations
- Donations on a crowdfunding campaign that doesn’t offer perks
- One-time or recurring donations on a donation page
- Per-unit and flat amount donations on an Athon fundraiser
- Direct donations (without receiving goods or services in exchange) on other campaign types
Examples of CRA ineligible donations
- Raffle entry purchases
- Item purchases on a sale fundraiser
- Bids on auction items
- Ticket purchases on an event campaign
Limited Support for French Language
Your website pages and customizable emails can be created bilingually or in French. Many Canadian organizations create their content in both English and French. Please note that registration forms, receipts, and all company support materials are only available in English, at this time.
Crowdfunding in Canada
Charity crowdfunding campaigns are big in Canada and for a good reason – they work! If your organization is looking for an innovative way to fundraise for your mission, while engaging your supporters, crowdfunding may be just the solution you’ve been looking for.
Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or initiative by raising money from a large number of people. Crowdfunding for nonprofits allows individuals to reach out to their network to raise funds while acting on behalf of an organization they feel passionate about. Crowdfunding may also be referred to as peer-to-peer fundraising because of the way in which people ask their peers for financial support for a charity’s mission.
