With an Impact Account, you can :
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 Charitable Impact Foundation , 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.
Opening a free Impact Account takes about 5 minutes.
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.
You can give to charities and Giving Groups with full recognition or without sharing your name and contact details.
See a list of charities and Giving Groups that you might be interested in and learn more about what they do, or easily search for familiar favourites.
If you'd like, easily schedule monthly deposits into your account and set up monthly charitable gifts to others.
With a Giving Group, multiple people can combine forces, pool or raise money, and support one or more charities together.
It's free to open and use an Impact Account. And, more money can get to charity when you give with Charitable Impact.

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.
