Niños Incapacitados can now provide tax receipts to Canadian donors
Niños Incapacitados has signed a unique tripartite agreement that enables them to provide tax receipts for Canadian donations through an exciting collaboration with Save the Children Canada and Save the Children Mexico. Currently, the Canada Revenue Agency does not permit tax deductions for donations made to charitable organizations outside Canada. But the CRA does allow certain approved domestic not-for-profit organizations – and Save the Children is one of them – to disperse funds to foreign charities like Niños Incapacitados. Everyone who donates to Niños Incapacitados will receive a tax receipt for 100% of their contribution.
“We are very excited about this unique collaboration,” said David McNiven, President of Niños Incapacitados. “Save the Children works in many ways in many countries to improve the lives of children and now, thanks to this agreement and the generosity of our Canadian donors, we will be able to help more sick children here in Ajijic and the surrounding area. We need to strengthen our financial foundation so that we don’t have to do what we dread most: turn away a seriously ill child because of lack of funds.”
