Can I partially claim a donation? For instance, if I have an official donation receipt for $1000, can I just claim $500 this year, and carry forward $500 to next year?

Can I partially claim a donation? For instance, if I have an official donation receipt for $1000, can I just claim $500 this year, and carry forward $500 to next year?

Correct, you do not have to claim all of the donations you made in the year on your current year return. It may be more beneficial to carry them forward and claim them on your return for any of the next five years, (or over the next ten years for a gift of ecologically sensitive land made after February 10, 2014).
