FAQs

Is the cost of my raffle ticket purchase tax deductible?

Raffle ticket purchases are not considered to be charitable donations and are therefore not tax deductible.

Are my raffle winnings considered taxable income?

Raffle winnings are not considered to be taxable income in Canada.

If I've won a raffle. Do I receive a tax receipt for the 30% that goes to the Foundation?

When someone wins one of our raffles they receive 70% of the total proceeds of the raffle. The Foundation receives the remaining 30% and the funds are dispersed to various organizations, therefore you are not eligible for a tax receipt as the Foundation is making the donation not the winner of the raffle.

I would like to make a donation to the Foundation. Will my donation be tax deductible?

The Foundation is considered to be a non-profit society that distributes grants to various groups. The Foundation is not a registered charity and therefore cannot issue tax receipts to donors.
