Tax Benefits of Giving

Your gift to AU may also be a tax gift to yourself, greatly increasing the value and impact of your donation.

The Canadian government encourages gifts to nonprofit organizations and charities by granting tax credits to individual donors and by allowing corporations to claim business deductions.

For more detailed information regarding charitable giving, see the Canada Revenue Agency’s Giving to Charity website, which provides a variety of useful links for donors.

It is a strong preference of Athabasca University that donors seek independent, qualified advice before giving a gift. The University is not privy to all the donor's circumstances, and is not in a position to provide informed advice on the structure, timing, or amount of a gift.
