Thinking About a Tax Deductible Donation to Support Canadian Rugby Before Year End?

There are a number of top contenders if you want to make a tax deductible donation before year end, and it can all be done online.

The Canadian Rugby Foundation have a number of specific funds to donate to, they operate without any full time staff so their administration overhead is minimal. The money goes to rugby not administration.

One of the Foundation's success stories is the Monty Heald fund which helped to eliminate the pay to play model for the women's XVs team. The fund is managed by former women's internationals like Stephanie White and former rugby directors like Liz Ferguson and Jill Zonneveld.
