I donated. Where is my tax receipt?

I gave to the Charter Challenge but did not receive a tax receipt yet. Where do I find it?

A:

All donations of $25 and over are eligible for a charitable donation tax receipt. If you did not give $25 or more, you will not receive a tax receipt.

If you did give $25 or more, you will receive your tax receipt after the end of the calendar year in which you contributed. So, if you gave to the Charter Challenge in February of 2019, your tax receipt won't be available until early 2020. We aim to ensure tax receipts are mailed out by the end of February each year.

Your tax receipt will arrive via email, and will be sent from this address: donation@receipts.facturly.com . If you don't see this email in your inbox, check your spam folders, or try searching for emails from the address above. If you still don't see your tax receipt, email info@springtide.ngo and let us know, and we'll make sure to get it to you as soon as possible.

It's not that we didn't send your receipt to you, it's that some email clients have spam filters that prevent delivery of messages from senders they don't recognize. In most cases, the message is delivered.

By sending receipts via email, we're able to direct more of the resources you've contributed to fighting the case, rather than spending those resources on postage, printing, and the associated labour costs.

Current Status:

- In early August of 2019, we raised enough support ($70,000) to cover the costs of preparing a court application and securing expert testimony for our case.

- The case is being filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on October 9th, 2019
 

How you can help

The main way you can help is to support the case financially. We need to raise another $150,000 to cover the costs associated with arguing the case at two levels of provincial court, and to file an application for leave with the Supreme Court of Canada. You can make a tax-deductible donation here.


What to expect

- Once filed, the case will be heard in a provincial court.

- Following an initial decision, there will be an appeal heard in another court. If the initial decision is in our favour, the Government of Canada will likely appeal it. If the decision is not in our favour, we will appeal it.

- Finally, the case may be heard by the Supreme Court. If the decision of the appeal court is in our favour, we suspect the Government will request leave from the Supreme Court. If the decision of the appeal court is in the government's favour, we will request leave from the Supreme Court to hear the case. If the case is heard in the Supreme Court of Canada, the decision will be final. If the case isn’t granted leave to be heard in the Supreme Court, the decision of the appeal court will be final.


Time and Money

We estimate the total costs for arguing and overseeing this case to be in the range of $300,000 - $350,000, spread out over the course of 2 - 4 years.

At each step, we will set a goal based on our estimate of the costs at each stage, and ask supporters to contribute to help us reach that goal, and to ensure the case can continue to move forward.
