    BULLETIN                 Charitable Donations - Income Tax Savings:
                             The following are samples showing the income tax savings to parishioners for donations that

     on Thursdays.           For clarification, there is no advantage to being in a higher tax bracket. The Federal savings is
                             15% on the first $200 and 29% on any additional contributions. The Provincial savings is
                             8.20% on the first $200 and 16% on any additional contributions. Therefore, if you make
                             donations around $200 in a year, it is better to save them until the following year, if you do not
                             need the short term cash. That way, additional money will be at a higher rate - 45% (federal and
