Member Benefits

Important Consideration

Unconditional Donation

"Direct or Indirect Benefit" - no connection between the provider of the donation and its beneficiary whatsoever.

Donations must be voluntary and UNCONDITIONAL. If a donor donates on condition that the money goes to a certain person he/she designated, this is a CONDITIONAL donation whether the person is their child, a minor, an adult, a relative or a friend. A donation must be rejected if there is reasonable ground to believe that it's not voluntary and unconditional

Although the donor may suggest that the donation go to a specific sport organization, the PEIASF is not obligated to follow the suggestion of the donor. Therefore, in disbursing funds, the PEIASF will consider, but will not be bound by, the requests made by donors.

The PEIASF will not issue an official receipt for income tax purposes if the donor has directed the PEIASF to give the funds to a specific person or family.

The PEIASF may issue an official receipt for income tax purposes if the donor has suggested that the donation be used by a Sport PEI recognized program/organization provided that:

No direct or indirect benefit accrues to the donor

No direct or indirect benefit accrues to any person related to the donor (see below for a definition of related persons)

The donation is unconditional and does not obligate the PEIASF to follow the suggestion

Definition of Related Persons: the donor must not be related to any potential benefactor of the donation if he/she is to be eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
