First Time Donor's Credit



In the 2013 budget, the Federal Government introduced the First Time Donor’s Credit (the “FTDC”).

The FTDC will increase the value of the federal Charitable Donations Tax Credit by 25% if neither the payer nor their spouse has claimed the credit since 2007. The Federal credit on the first $200 used to be $30 at 15%, and now will be $80 at 40%; and for $1000 the amount used to be $282 at 29% and now will be $432 at 54%.

The FTDC will apply on up to $1,000 for cash donations made between 2013 to 2017.

The FTDC will only be available in the first year a donor or their spouse claims it.
