Payment methods

Your Impact Account is like an online bank account for charitable giving.

Here are the payment methods we accept:

1) Credit cards and mobile payments

One of the easiest ways to add money to your Impact Account is by credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

If you're using the iOS app, you can also add money through Apple Pay. If you're using the Android app, you can also add money through Google Pay. Charges will appear as "CHARITABLE IMPACT" on your credit card statement. 

Note: The minimum and maximum amounts you can add to your Impact Account by credit card are outlined below. There is no minimum account balance that you need to maintain, and no maximum limit.

Giving directly to a charity, Giving Group, or Campaign by cheque

If you’d like, you can instruct us to give the money you’re adding by cheque to a specific charity, Giving Group, or Campaign on Charitable Impact instead of simply adding money to your Impact Account balance. We’ll send the money to the recipient once we’ve received and processed your cheque and corresponding form.

Tax receipts for cheque donations

When adding money by cheque, a tax receipt will be electronically issued to you by email (so please be sure to include your email address on the cheque donation form). If you haven’t received your tax receipt by email within four (4) weeks of sending in your cheque donation, please contact us at
