Important fiscal 2014 year-end reminder
ABOUT YOUR DONATIONS
The FGM offices will be closed from December 23 (at 5) to January 2 inclusive. To take full advantage of your tax credits on both a federal and provincial level while ensuring the most efficient service possible for the issuance of your receipts, we ask that you send us your donations no later than December 22 at 5 p.m.
For the donation of publicly traded securities, the transfer must be conducted no later than Friday, December 19 before the close of the stock markets at 4 p.m.
Please note that even if a cheque is dated December 23, 2014, for example, if the postmark reads January 3, 2015, this donation cannot be considered for a 2014 tax credit.
There’s still time!
We recommend that you plan your mailing to ensure it meets the deadline.
We remind you that until December 31, 2014 at 5 p.m., it is also possible to donate to the various funds that already exist via the secure online CanaDon (CanadaHelps) donation service on the Give page under “Give to an Existing Fund.”
TO CREATE A NEW FUND
If you wish to create a new fund, please contact Hélène Latreille no later than 12:00 noon on Monday, December 22, 2014.
