Schools (Religious)

If a school offers both religious instruction and general education, tuition and similar payments must be reasonably allocated between the two. It has been confirmed by the courts that the portion allocable to religious instruction is properly receipted as the eligible amount of a gift.

CRA requires that a school be able to segregate and substantiate its general education operating costs to determine what amount paid by parents is properly receiptable as a gift. Amounts received as gifts from supporters who are not parents of children attending the school as fully receiptable.
