Ways to add money
Your Impact Account is like an online bank account for charitable giving.
With Charitable Impact, you can add money to your account any time you want. Then, you can gift it to any registered charity (or charities) in Canada, to a Giving Group or Campaign on Charitable Impact. You can also send charitable dollars from your account to friends and family with Impact Accounts so they can give the money away to charities and causes of their choice.
If you need a hand, please email us or call us at 1-877-531-0580.
There a number of ways you can add money to your Impact Account
1) Credit cards
One of the easiest ways to add money to your Impact Account is by credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
Charges will appear as "CHIMP FNDN* DONATION" on your credit card statement.
You can also add money to your Impact Account by mailing a cheque to Charitable Impact.
- Please address cheques to CHIMP: Charitable Impact Foundation.
- Include the email address you used to register your Impact Account in the memo line of the cheque.
Please mail cheques to:
CHIMP: Charitable Impact Foundation
Suite 1250 - 1500 West Georgia Street
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.
- Include the recipient’s name in the memo field on the cheque.
- By default, we share your name and gift amount (as outlined on your cheque) with the gift recipient—to give anonymously, please include a note instructing us what you’d like to share and what you’d like to keep private.
Tax receipts for cheque donations
When adding money by cheque, a tax receipt will be electronically issued to you by email. Please make sure that you include your email address on your cheque or in an enclosed letter so that you receive your tax receipt promptly. If you haven’t received your tax receipt by email within four (4) weeks of sending in your cheque donation, please contact us at email@example.com.
In addition to adding money by credit card and cheque, Charitable Impact gladly accepts donations of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities. The tax benefits of donating securities directly are far greater than selling them and donating the proceeds. We can also accept privately traded securities.
