Fundraising events

The factors that will affect your tax, whether you are running or supporting fundraising events.

If you run a fundraising event your donors may make contributions, like the cost of a ticket to attend your event. Because they get a benefit they have not made a gift; however, they may be able to claim a portion of their contribution as a tax deduction.

You may choose to support a fundraising event. The nature of your support will impact its tax deductibility.

To be tax deductible as a contribution, the contribution must be made by an individual to a DGR for an eligible fundraising event. The contribution has to comply with any conditions that may apply to the DGR and may be money or property, depending on the type of event.
