The Musée Canadien de l’Arme et du Bronze is a registered non-profit organization authorized to issue official receipts for charitable donations, eligible for an income tax deduction on a tax return.
Tax deductions are calculated on the value of donations obtained by:
- Inheritance and other trusts
The donation of property is considered the same as a cash donation. For example: for a donation of goods valued at $ 2,000, the deductions will be as follows:
- $ 933 to $ 993 in the case of a donor who is an individual or estate *
- $ 290 to $ 1,100 in the case of a donor who is a corporation *
* Reductions on combined federal and provincial taxes can amount to these calculations. This example is for demonstration only and has been calculated based on the Quebec and Canadian tax tables for the fiscal year of 2016.
A planned donation is part of a complete financial plan. It allows a donor to achieve their philanthropic vision and meet financial goals while benefiting from significant tax reductions.
A planned donation allows for the most appropriate and easiest way to give to charity. There exists numerous way to donate, such as a donation left by will, life insurance, charitable annuity, etc…
DONATION OF PROPERTY
Donations of property are charitable donations, as are monetary donations. These donations may be pieces of armory or works of art, such as sculptures, paintings, etc… The value of the donation is based on the value of the donated property. (See note)
TAX RECEIPT ISSUED IN EXCHANGE FOR A DONATION

The Musée Canadien de l’Arme et du Bronze can issue tax receipts for charitable donations of either cash and / or goods it receives, allowing donors to receive tax benefits.
In order to establish the true market value (TMV) of an item offered to our museum, an evaluation must be made by a recognized professional evaluator. The donor will then be recognized as having made a donation of a value equivalent to the true market value (TMV) of the item and will be eligible for a tax credit calculated based on that value.
PROCEDURE FOR THE DONATION OF AN ARTIFACT
It is impossible to show every item offered, the Musée Canadien de l’Arme et du Bronze has established an acquisition committee. The function of this committee is to select the objects and ensure that they have a direct bearing on the various themes developed by the museum as part of its exhibits.
The Acquisition Committee carefully analyzes each donation proposal and in the event of a negative decision, an official of the Committee will provide suggestions for other museums who may be interested in the item.
The retrieval of an artifact (firearm, works of art, stamps or coins) is usually carried out at the residence of the donor by a member of the Acquisition Committee.
For remote areas in Quebec (Abitibi, Lac St-Jean, Saguenay, Gaspé and North Shore), the shipment of artifacts is done by Purolator, a courier service that will safely deliver the artifact inside a maximum of 24 hours directly to the office of museum whose coordinated are:
