Is there a deadline or timeline for requesting assistance with my grants?

Donations and Tax Receipts FAQs
How does the process work with the Town taking donations for my organization?
Please contact us for a more detailed explanation of how our process works. However, simply put, the Town of Taber is able to take donations on behalf of your organization, issue tax receipts to the donor, and then provide the funding to your organization.
What organizations can the Town accept donations for?
This service is intended for non-profit organizations that operate in Taber and serve the Town of Taber and who do not have charitable status. Organizations that already have charitable status are not eligible for this service as they are able to issue tax receipts of their own.
Does the Town keep any of the donated funds?
No, the donated funds belong to your organization. Your organization will receive the full amount of funds as was donated.
Will the Town help solicit donations on behalf of my organization?
No. The Town of Taber is able to offer tax receipts and a place for the public to donate the funds, but the Town will not solicit or advertise for donations on your organization's behalf. Your organization will still be responsible for advertising for your project, event, or initiative.
