Charity Account

There are more than 86,000 Canadian registered charities listed on Charitable Impact. When you claim your charity page, you’ll get access to a Charity Account where you can customize your charity page, set up direct deposit, download donor information, thank donors for their gifts, and more.

Working with Charitable Impact enables you to accept more complicated gifts from a wider variety of donors. We can help donors process donations of non-cash assets such as publicly traded securities, life insurance, and private company shares, before we send their gifts to you. Because we’re a registered charity and public foundation, we issue their charitable tax receipts.

Increase the opportunities for your charity by using Charitable Impact’s technology and expertise. We can help streamline the process for accepting gifts of all kinds.

Good to know

Where does Charitable Impact get the information listed on charity pages? 

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) sends Charitable Impact an updated copy of the Charities Listings approximately every quarter. The Charities Listings include contact information, general activities, and financial information including the public portions of a charity’s annual information return (T3010) for all active charitable organizations, public foundations and private foundations. In addition, it also lists inactive/revoked charities and active and closed Registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Associations (RCAAAs). The CRA provides this information to anyone interested upon request.

How often are charity pages updated? 

We aim to update Charitable Impact’s charity pages and internal records within two weeks of receiving this data from the CRA. On a weekly basis, we automatically download the current list of registered charities (both active and revoked) from the CRA’s public website (this information does not include RCAAAs or T3010 data). Charity pages on the Charitable Impact website are updated accordingly.


We do not know or have influence over the timeliness of CRA making updates to their own records upon receipt of information from individual charities, nor of those changes being reflected on their public website or in the data snapshots we receive from them.
