Support The New Gallery (TNG)
TNG is a registered charity and non-profit society that relies on a variety of funding sources for its activities and programs. Financial contributions received from individuals and businesses are an important part of TNG’s private sector income and augment the public sector funding provided through government grants. Your tax-deductible donation will be used to realize the Gallery’s exhibitions and programs.
For questions, or to discuss how you can make a planned or deferred gift for a very specific project or purpose, please contact Su Ying Strang, TNG’s Director. Your inquiry will be handled in a confidential manner. We warmly thank all of our supporters, without whom we would be unable to realize our ambitions and ideas year after year, and look forward to working with new friends as we build for the future.

Other ways to donate
Contributions of services (i.e. time, skills, effort) are not property and do not qualify for an official donation receipt. However, as stated in the CRA Income Tax Act, “a charity can pay for services rendered and later accept the return of all or a portion of the payment as a gift, provided it is returned voluntarily.”
A gift is defined by Canada Revenue Agency as “a voluntary transfer of property without valuable consideration to the donor.” When you give to a registered charity such as TNG, both you and the charity benefit: the charity receives valuable funds, and your donation of $10 or over (either in the form of cash or a gift-in-kind) is tax-deductible. You may be able to double your gift to TNG. If you work for a company or business with a policy of matching their employees’ charitable donations, they will match your contribution to TNG. For more information, contact your employer regarding this option.
Enhanced charitable tax credit
Effective January 1, 2007, the Alberta government raised the charitable tax credit for eligible annual donations above $200 by 60 per cent. Including the federal tax credit, Albertans now receive a 50-cent tax credit for every dollar donated over the $200 threshold. This gives Alberta one of the highest charitable tax credits in Canada.
