Donate Today to Your Coquitlam -- Port Coquitlam Conservatives
It takes money to win elections and the only source is you!
In Canada only individuals are allowed to contribute to political candidates and political parties. Businesses, unions and non-profits cannot give monetary or in kind donations.
In 2018 individuals are allowed to give up $1,575 to local electoral district associations as well as an additional $1,575 to federal political parties for a maximum total annual contribution of $3,150.
Tax credits are available for political donations. In 2018 the credit is calculated as follows: 75% of the first $400, 50% on the next $350 and 33 1/3% of any contribution over $750, up to $1,275. This results in a maximum annual credit of $650.
Best value is a $400 contribution that will only cost you $100 after your $300 tax credit. This is less than $10 a month to ensure a stronger more conservative Canada.
