Donate

On this page, you can donate to either the local Toronto-Danforth riding association for either the Green Party of Canada or the Green Party of Ontario.  Choose the right heading.

Green Party of Canada — local riding association

To donate to the local federal riding association, supporting Chris Tolley‘s campaign:

  • Donate securely online:
  • Mail a cheque, payable to Toronto-Danforth Federal Green Party Association, and mail to our Financial Agent, Chris Tolley, at 5 Audley Ave, Toronto ON M4M 1P5.
  • Or call 416-800-5020.

If you pay federal taxes, you’ll get money back when you donate.

For the first $400 you donate in any year, you’ll get three quarters of it back at tax time. So that means you can give $400 now and use the tax receipt we provide to get $300 back. That means it only costs $100 to give the Green Party a $400 push.

It’s easy to spend $25 at restaurant or at the movies. A $100 donation now will only cost $25 once you get $75 back on your taxes.

Donation – Tax Credit = Your Cost
$1,200 – $625 = $575
$1,000 – $558 = $442
$750 – $475 = $275
$600 – $400 = $200
$400 – $300 = $100
$200 – $150 = $50
$100 – $75 = $25
$40 – $30 = $10

This table applies per person per year. So your partner can make a matching $400 donation to receive a matching $300 credit, and you both can donate again in the new year.

(Note that after the first $400, the additional tax credit on the next $350 is one half. After the first $750, the additional tax credit is one third up to a yearly maximum tax credit of $650. You must be a permanent resident of Canada to donate.  The maximum donation to local federal EDAs and candidates is $1,100 per year, to which you can add another $1,100 in donations to national federal parties.)

Donation – Tax Credit = Your Cost
$2,821 – $1,240 = $1,581
$1,948 – $949 = $999
$1,240 – $713 = $527
$1,000 – $593 = $407
$800 – $493 = $307
$600 – $393 = $207
$400 – $293 = $107
$200 – $150 = $50
$100 – $75 = $25
$40 – $30 = $10

    Yesterday, the Executive of our EDA in Saskatoon-Humboldt decided to send $100 to the Green Party candidate in the Toronto-Danforth byelection. We wish Adriana the very best.
