How it works
Like a bank account for your charitable giving
With an Impact Account, you can :
Find charities that match your interests and learn more about what they do.
Add money to your account, then take as much time and space as you need to decide which charities to support.
Give to your favourite charities from your account now, or save some of your charitable dollars and build your impact over time. The choice is yours.
The donor-advised fund for everyone
Charitable Impact operates as a donor-advised fund. In short, this means you can manage all of your charitable giving from a single account, which we call the Impact Account.
When you add money to your Impact Account, you're actually making a donation to CHIMP: Charitable Impact Foundation (Canada), a registered charity and public foundation. It's why you get a tax receipt after adding money. The funds you add stay in your account until you decide you'd like to send gifts to charities, Giving Groups, and other people on Charitable Impact.
Impact Account highlights
Rediscover how good it feels to give
An Impact Account offers you the time and space to think about the change you want to make in the world, give joyfully, and say 'no' to fundraising requests peacefully.

Strategies for impactful giving
Plan your giving
The Charitable Impact team can work with you to build and manage a personalized giving plan—from finding charities that match your interests to giving in the most tax-effective way possible.
Invest and grow your donations
In addition to opening an Impact Account, you can also open a Charitable Investment Account for longer-term investment and management of charitable assets. Over time, charitable investments can grow, increasing your potential impact.
Donate cash, securities, real estate, and more
Act on your generosity in more ways than one: donate publicly traded securities, real estate, life insurance, cryptocurrency, and private company preferred shares.
Inspiring the next generation
Education plays a key role in inspiring the next generation to give. 2 out of 3 Canadians who actively give to charities today were exposed to conversations about charity early in their lives.
Charitable Impact develops programs for schools and youth sports to help children understand the act of giving, and how their decisions and actions can create change.
The Charitable Allowance Program for education invests in the development and empowerment of future donors in the classroom. Led by teachers or parents, this program helps young people connect with their community to raise funds with others to support causes of their choice.
The Play Better program for sports encourages coaches and parents to use charitable rewards to change the game of youth sports. This program rewards players with charitable dollars when they reach training goals set by themselves and their coaches.
