I've got unclaimed charitable donations from 2011 to the end of 2014. Why isn't 2014 included in the eligible claim years?

Unclaimed donations are referring to donations that are from previous tax years (in your case 2011-2013). Donations for the current tax year (2014) will have it's own section to enter charitable donations since they are not considered unclaimed from previous years. 

When you profiled for donations, you likely chose:

1. Unclaimed donation contributions carried forward from a previous tax return 

Under that same section you will also need to profile the following to add donations for the current tax year:

2. I made donations to a qualified charitable organization


If you've already profiled for #2, then continue past the previous years, and you should land on the "New Charitable Donations" page, which is for the donations for the current tax year!
