Did you Know

That if you receive a receipt for your donations you can receive up to 50% back when you file your tax return? The charitable deduction is a non-refundable tax credit, so you have to owe tax to get a refund.  If you do owe tax, the deduction for an Alberta resident is as follows:

First $200 of donations          25% refunded
Everything above $200           50% refunded

If for some reason you can’t use the deduction this year, you can carry it forward 5 years. So, if you already gave $200 towards other charities, filling in an envelope will turn a $100 donation in the offering into $50 in your pocket.  Over the year, it’s amazing how the savings add up.

Charities provide services that the government couldn’t come close to providing or funding, so why not take advantage of their offer.

FINE PRINT
Westside King’s Church spending is confined to Board approved programs/projects.  Contributions designated to approved programs/projects will be used as directed with the understanding that once needs have been met, or for any reason cannot be completed as determined by the Board, remaining funds will be allocated where most needed.

Tax receipts are issued once a year by Westside king’s Church for all donations received. You should receive your donation receipt by Feb 28th of the year following the calendar year in which you made your donation.
