DONATE your gift Cards for a TAX RECEIPT
The average Canadian household receives $500.00 in Gift Cards each year and many of these cards simply act as dust collector or take up room in our wallets. Why not donate these unused gift cards to not only contribute to the Centre of Hope in a direct way but also secure yourself a TAX DEDUCTIBLE receipt. These are very valuable to the Centre of Hope; we are always in need of items that many gift cards can buy, so we appreciate you thought.
How to make your gift
Simply follow these simple steps and Voilà you have contributed to the Centre of Hope and earned yourself tax deductions.
- Register your gift card: register it on http://www.cardswap.ca/charity/collectinfo/charityid/13301-10991-ffb5-2043 and select Centre of Hope. Then mail your gift card to:
