Should I donate from my small business corporation or personally?

Ideally its beneficial to donate from your corporation as it reduces your taxable income by the full amount donated saving you 15.5% income tax at the corporate tax rate. If you donate personally you’ll receive a tax credit for 15% on the first $200 dollars of donation and 29% above that. Therefore, if your personal marginal tax rate is 30% and above you should would want to donate out of the corporation.
