Because the government recognizes the essential role of cultural philanthropy in the development and reputation of Quebec culture both here and abroad, it has set out to establish conditions that encourage Quebecers to give more to arts and culture. As of July 3, 2013, the following new tax credits have been rolled out :
An additional tax credit of 25% for a first major cultural donation ($5,000 to $25,000) ;
A tax credit of 30% for donations of $250,000 or more (remitted over a maximum period of 10 years).
