City of Vaughan Contribution Rebate Program
For this election, contributions up to $200 will be reimbursed by 75% by the City of Vaughan after the election. For example, if you donate $200, you will receive back a rebate cheque for $150. As a result your actual out of pocket donation is $50. A husband and wife contribrition of $200 each will result in rebate cheques of $150 to each contributor. To qualify for the rebate, the following conditions apply:
– Donation amount must be a minimum of $50. Your name must appear on Vaughan’s voter list
– You cannot make a contribution as a corporation or trade union
– Rebates are “one time only” meaning that you can donate to many candidates but receive a rebate only once to a maximum of $150
If you are uncomfortable donating online, you can still make a contribution by cheque and mailed to;
