A sponsorship includes certain benefits, such as tickets for your guests, the value of which are deducted from your receipt. For example, Presenting, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorships include logo representation at the event and an ad in the performance playbill, among other benefits. These sponsors will receive a business receipt for the total value of the sponsorship. Friend, Ticket, and Solo Act sponsors will receive tickets to the event along with a donation receipt for the maximum amount allowable. Per CRA guidelines, we are required to deduct the value of the benefit that one obtains with a sponsorship (i.e. the value of tickets). Click here to see the available sponsorships.
When you make a donation you will receive a donation receipt for the full amount for income tax purposes.
