I’m looking at volunteering next year in Cambodia or Tanzania and the organization I’m currently reading about claims that all volunteer expenses (including airfare, accommodations, etc) are 100% tax deductible. I’ve tried to find information online about Canada’s volunteer tax deductions but I haven’t been successful. Just wondering if anyone out there knows if/what any options for Canadians wanting to volunteer abroad are! Thanks.
Admin Notes: Each year many thousands of Canadians, specially students, volunteer in international destinations. Also there are major organizations like “doctors without borders” , Red cross who occupy Canadian volunteers on regular basis and in special disaster situations. I hope international volunteer expenses must be tax deductible in Canada. I hope we will get few good answers to this question.We also have to differentiate between tax deductible and tax credits.
