Are Lawyer fees in establishing a Charitable trust, consider a charitable donation if paid prior to the establishment of the Charitable trust?"

A new Charitable Trust was established in 2018, but required a retainer for the lawyer before establishing the charity. How do I consider the paid retainer, for personal Tax! A charitable donation to the new Charitable Trust? The problem is timing as the payment was made before the Charitable trust approval came in.

I would recommend contacting the CRA with this question, even if you have a receipt: https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/replies/2647704
