Mécénat Musica is a fundraiser where an individual donor receives a new special tax credit for one large cultural donation. Revenu Quebec says this can only be done once in a lifetime, prior to December 31, 2017.
A contribution of one unit of $25,000 to Mécénat Caprice is used as follows:
$20,000 to Ensemble Caprice
$5,000 to an Extreme Emerging Artist
The net cost of a contribution of $25,000 after an individual’s personal tax credits is ~$6,750, by using your once in a lifetime Revenu Quebec additional tax credit for a large cultural donation.
With the $20,000 to Ensemble Caprice, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec adds a matching grant of 205% or $41,000 and Heritage Canada adds a matching grant of 100% or $20,000. This is a unique chance for Caprice. The total represents ~$81,000 – as high as 11 times the after tax cost of $6,750 ! This money is deposited into the Ensemble Caprice endowment account with the Fondation du Grand Montreal, which generates income for Caprice at a minimum rate of 3.5% per year, every year and forever.
You too can join Mécénat Caprice! Please write a check to Ensemble Caprice today for $25,000 – date it December 31st, 2015. It is an investment like no other that enhances the future of Caprice today and also for generations to come. Thank you very much!
* After tax cost assumes Quebec resident has sufficient taxable income to absorb the donation tax credits. See Mécénat Musica presentation binder for further details.
