A Charitable Impact Account allows a User to use a wide assortment of the Services available on and through the Charitable Impact System and to make charitable donations (a "Donation") to their Impact Account, to make recommendations regarding the transfer of funds (a "Transfer") from their Impact Account to one or more accounts on the Charitable Impact System and to make recommendations regarding disbursements (a "Disbursement") from their Impact Account to registered charities and/or other entities classified as "qualified donees" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) which have been approved by the Foundation as eligible donees (such charities and other entities referred to as "Qualified Recipient(s)").
Anyone wishing to become a User and create an Impact Account must provide certain information to the Charitable Impact Collective and enter into a Charitable Impact Account Agreement with the Charitable Impact Collective. The Charitable Impact Account Agreement (the “Agreement”) is posted on the Site at charitableimpact.com/account-agreement. The Agreement must be reviewed and agreed to by you before you can become a User and create your own Charitable Impact Account.
The Charitable Impact System encourages Users and other interested people to form and/or participate in designated groups on the Charitable Impact System for the purpose of Disbursing to Qualified Recipients as a group and to use the Charitable Impact System and the Services as a group (a "Giving Group"). Users and non-Users may participate in a Giving Group but you must be a User and agree to the Agreement before you start your own Giving Group. Subject to the approval of the Charitable Impact Collective and the Agreement, a User may establish a Giving Group Account.
A Community Account allows a company, employer, organization or other person or entity (a "Community") to use a wide assortment of Services available on and through the Charitable Impact System and to make Donations to Community Accounts, Transfers to Impact Accounts and Giving Group Accounts and Disbursements to Qualified Recipients.

Any Qualified Recipient wishing to become approved to use the Charitable Impact System and the Services must provide certain information to the Charitable Impact Collective and enter into a Charitable Impact Account Agreement with the Foundation.

Upon any Donation made by a One-Time Donor to a Qualified Recipient or to a Giving Group an electronic record of such Donation will be made available to the One-Time Donor via email or other means of communication selected by the Charitable Impact Collective.
