Canada's new "super credit" for first-time donors is designed to jumpstart charitable giving, has wide support among Canadians.
"Nearly 70 per cent of Canadians support the 'First-Time Donor’s Super Credit' introduced in the federal budget last week, says a BMO Harris Private Banking survey released on Thursday. The survey also found that: 93 per cent of Canadians feel that the new credit will encourage more charitable giving or maintain current levels of support; and 50 per cent of young Canadians (18-34 years old) say that they will contribute more to charities because of the new credit." --Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald
