The Fur-Bearers is a registered Canadian charity, which means we can issue charitable tax receipts to donors at year end. We commonly receive questions regarding tax receipts beginning in mid-December, and have put together this list of frequently asked questions to help!
The Fur-Bearers’ system automatically sends tax receipts in early January via email. Due to a change in our contact management system at the beginning of the calendar year, some donors may receive multiple tax receipts. If you have not received a tax receipt by February, please contact us at info@TheFurBearers.com or call 604-435-1850.
We’re issuing all tax receipts in January 2024. Please wait until February 2024 and check your spam folders (Gmail users please check Updates/Promotions folders) prior to contacting us. Inquiries may be directed to info@TheFurBearers.com or 604-435-1850.
The Canada Revenue Agency determines what is eligible for a charitable tax receipt. At this time, purchasing tickets to a lottery or buying an item through a silent auction do not qualify.
We apologize for any confusion this may cause. The Fur-Bearers moved to Canadian-based contact and fundraising software in February 2023; as such, some donations were received in our old system and will get a separate tax receipt for those donations. Both of these receipts are valid and can be used as deductions on your taxes in 2024.
CanadaHelps.org and Facebook (via PayPal Giving Fund) both issue receipts directly from their own charitable foundations. Please check for emails from these organizations or login to your account with them to locate your tax receipts.
Paper mail will be sent out in January with tax receipts to individuals who don’t have an email address on file.
Thank you for all your support this year, and all you’ve done for the animals and communities across Canada!
