Did you know that you can receive a year-end tax receipt if you decide to donate to the Pacific Parklands Foundation?
Pacific Parklands Foundation is a registered Canadian Charity, and as such we are legally bound to be transparent and follow the laws and rules pertaining to charitable giving – which includes providing a tax receipt regardless of whether your donation is used right away or not.
How does a charitable tax receipt work if my donation is not being used right away?
We’re glad you asked!
Often, several donations are made for groups, like park associations, throughout the year; Pacific Parklands Foundation holds these funds in trust until they are needed – when they are needed is up to those park associations.
Here’s how it works:
Let’s say someone makes a donation to our Regional Parks through Pacific Parklands Foundation (Thank you, by the way!). At the end of the year, this person receives a tax receipt. While the group chosen for the donation may not have a current project for the funds to go toward, that donation with be kept in trust until it is needed.
The Donor gets a tax receipt and the park association gets the funds when they are required. That simple.
Pacific Parklands Foundation is Responsible to our Donors
Another way we ensure responsibility towards donors and their donations is by voluntarily following the “Donor Bill of Rights” (scroll down to check it out!).
