The Syrian Refugees Need Our Help!

Donate today and get a tax benefit tomorrow - it's that simple.

Did you know that in Quebec the tax credits for charitable donations is higher than in any other province?

  • Fiscal Advanages:
    Make a donation to Haqqani Foundation and get a substantial tax credit.
    It's a WIN, WIN situation! This is how it works...

    - A $100 donation equals $35 in tax credits.
    - A $250 donation equals $96.50 in tax credits.
    - A $500 donation equals $229 in tax credits.
    - A $1000 charitable donation equals $494 in tax credits!!
    $262 Federal tax credits and $232 Provincial tax credits = $494, or a 49.4% return.

    The more you give, the bigger the tax credit. With a $1000 donation, almost half comes back to reduce your taxes owing. As you can see, by giving you also receive, so it costs you less than you might think!
    [Charitable donation tax credit calculator] And it gets better...

  • Giving for the first time: If you have never claimed a charitable donation on your income tax return before, you'll receive an additional 25% more in Federal tax credits because you are a first-time donor. On a $1000 donation this amounts to an extra $250 for a total of $744 total in tax credits!! ($512 Federal and $232 Provincial = $744, or a 74.4% return.)

    Therefore by giving $1000 to settle Syrian refugees, you pay only $256 from your pocket and the government gives you $744 in tax credits thus reducing your tax owed for the year by the same amount... $744.00! This is money you would have spent anyway; you are just reallocating it to help others, and you benefit as well. That's why we call it a WIN-WIN!!

    These people need our help. If you are a first time donor looking for tax advantages, helping us help others is a win-win situation of which you can be very proud. Charitable donation tax credit calculator

  • Why donate now?

    By making your donation before the December 31st, allows you to claim this credit on your 2015 tax return thus getting your benefit in early 2016. Donations made in 2016 can be claimed on your 2016 Income Tax Return due in early 2017. By giving now, you and your refugee family benefit sooner. Charitable donation tax credit calculator

  • Where your money goes:
    This money will be put toward settling families in and around Montreal by the charitable organization One Light Foundation working together with Haqqani Foundation and the Montreal Sufi Centre and it's large pool of dedicated volunteers. Many of our members come from the middle east and speak fluent Arabic and allied dialects, Turkish, Farsi amongst others. We know how to best respond to the needs of these refugees. In fact, some of our members were refugees themselves and want to help the newcomers to Montreal. Montreal Sufi Centre

  • Our community:
    We gather, as a community four times a week so the refugees will have an extended family and social network to help with their integration. Our numbers include a lot of families with young children as well. We offer arabic language classes to our youngsters every Saturday morning. The children coming will strengthen our community as they make new friends and allow our children to speak in arabic with children their own age... another win-win. Montreal Sufi Centre

  • Please give generously:
    We know how to make every dollar count. We are all volunteers and some of our number have, not only full-time jobs, but run for 2 or 3 other jobs as well. We know how to stretch a dollar and make each one count.

    No one is taking a salary from this endeavour. Rest assured, every dollar you donate, will go to helping a Syrian family.

    We accept cash, e-transfers, Paypal transfers and cheques payable to "Fondation Haqqani" our official name since 2003 registered with the Federal Government, Revenue Canada. Click here for more details.

    Make your money work harder for you. The more you give, the greater the credit, and personal reward. Please, please, please... give generously! All donations are tax deductible and benefit the donor with a generous Income Tax credit.

    In Islamic culture, if you save one life, it's as if you saved all of humanity. In the same spirit, make your goal to help at least one person.

    Together we can make a difference.
