The Benefits of Membership
As a member of the Peterborough NDP, you will be kept up to date on the issues that affect all of us. Why not get involved, and help show our community what a difference a strong and united group of NDP-ers can make. As a member of the riding, you automatically become a member of both the Provincial and Federal parties. You will receive exclusive information about the NDP's activities and its stand on issues. And you'll be able to have your concerns heard by the party as only a member can.
How much does it cost to join the NDP?
- Wage earners - $25.00 per year.
- Those not earning a wage or students - $5.00 per year
Who can become a Member of the NDP?
- Anyone 14 years of age or older can become a member of the NDP.
Methods of Payment
We recommend the Pre-Authorized Chequing plan. It helps the party plan its revenues and expenditures and allows members to take full advantage of tax rebates. You will be able to spread your contributions throughout the year instead of making one large donation.
Tax credits make donating easier and allow you to give more. When you give $200, you get back $150 on your income tax return, so it really only costs you $50. Both the Provincial and Federal Political Tax Credits are not a deduction against your income, but a real credit against your tax payable. The credit is applied against the final tax payable line on your tax form. And now, should your provincial tax credit exceed your provincial tax payable, the difference is payable to you.
