Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes. Pembina Trails Voices is a registered charity in Canada, and we are able to provide donors with an official tax receipt for their gift. We will automatically produce an official tax receipt for all donations of $20 or more. Receipts for donations of less than $20 are only made upon request.
Can I designate my gift to support a specific chorister in PTV?
No. Canada Revenue Agency does not allow any charitable organization to issue official tax receipts if the donor is able to choose the specific beneficiary of their donation. Donors can support a specific program, but the charity must identify the beneficiary.
I am a PTV parent, and would like to make a donation this year rather than participate in annual fundraising activities. Is it possible to do this?
Our volunteer Council Members oversee our fundraising activities each year, and this question will be discussed at a future Council meeting. If it does become possible to make a donation and receive an official tax receipt for your support, please note that your donation cannot be applied to your individual chorister's touring credits for the year, nor can your chorister benefit directly from your support (see above). Your gift will help to offset the total costs of touring, but you will still be responsible for the additional cost of your chorister's participation in the tour.
Can I designate my support to a specific program within PTV?
Yes. If you would like to specifically direct your gift to our concert tour fund, to hire trained musicians and clinicians to train and perform with our choirs, to support the cost of uniforms, or to a bursary fund to help offset the costs for talented students in financial need, please contact our Artistic Director, Valdine Anderson (phone & email) or our Administrative Assistant, Ms. Dorothy Christie (phone & email).
Will I receive an official tax receipt for my sponsorship of PTV?
A sponsorship by a business implies that the business will receive advertising or promotion in return for its donation. Because it is difficult to establish a fair market value for this advantage, Canada Revenue Agency does not allow us to issue tax receipts to businesses. Individuals may receive an official tax receipt for their donation, less the value of any concert tickets issued to them as a benefit of their gift.
Can I make my donation online?
Yes. Online donations are received through Paypal. Please follow the link on the support page.
