Does my gift qualify for charitable credit against my Canadian income taxes?
Yes. Canadian Physicians for Life is a registered Canadian Charity. Our Charitable Registration number is 118835248RR0001.

If I live outside the country, is my gift still tax deductible?
If you have a Canadian taxable income, your tax credits may be applied to offset tax on that income as if you were a resident of Canada. If you are a US resident, your gift may still achieve full IRS Deduction status.

What if I don’t want to be publicly recognized for my gift?
We will respect the wishes of any donor who prefers to give without recognition. At your request, we will keep your donation anonymous.

What is the Highest Priority Needs Fund?
The Highest Priority Needs Fund is a collection of unrestricted funds that we can draw upon to respond to immediate opportunities and challenges as they arise. These funds will be directed towards, but not limited to, the cost of providing and taking part in the CPL Crisis Line, annual conference, legal proceedings, student networking events, and other initiatives that support our pro-life medical community across Canada.

What is your donor restricted gift policy?
Spending of funds is confined to Canadian Physicians for Life approved programs and projects. Each contribution directed toward an approved program or project will be used as restricted with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by Canadian Physicians for Life, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.
