On March 21, the Federal Government introduced a temporary First-Time Donor Super Credit (FDSC) to supplement the existing Charitable Donations Tax Credit (CDTC).  

Lamerat NiguseCurrently, the CDTC provides an individual with a tax credit of:

  • 15% for the first $200 of annual charitable donations
  • 29% for donations exceeding $200

The FDSC will supplement the CDTC, meaning that first-time individual donors (those who have not claimed the CDTC since 2007) will be given a:

  • 40% federal credit for donations of $200 or less
  • 54% federal credit for the portion of donations over $200, but not exceeding $1,000.

The FDSC will be available for donations made on or after March 21, 2013 and may be claimed only once in the 2013 or a subsequent taxation year before 2018.

So, if you are thinking of becoming a first time donor, consider Transforming Faces! 100% of donations will go directly to cleft care for children in developing countries and any donation of $200 or more will be doubled! A private charitable foundation covers our overhead and matches donations of $200 or more.

Donate today! Your donation and impact will be doubled and you will receive a generous tax incentive.

Thanks in advance for Transforming Lives!
