Chimp Foundation

Empowering the human spirit of charity

Charitable Impact Foundation is a registered charity — or more specifically, a public foundation.

It operates as a donor-advised fund, and exists to facilitate gifts to other registered charities (referred to as “qualified donees”) and to grow the culture of charity in Canada.

Charitable Impact Foundation champions CHIMP’s vision to make giving part of everyday living, and to empower Canadians to be more impactful with their charitable gifts.

When you give with CHIMP, Charitable Impact Foundation ensures that the money reaches your chosen destination. The Foundation manages and protects the money in your CHIMP Account until you’re ready to send it to the charities of your choice.


CHIMP is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency as CHIMP: Charitable Impact Foundation (Canada). Our business/registration number with the CRA is 845528827RR0001. We are audited by Deloitte and advised by the leading charity lawyers in Canada.

Norton Rose Fulbright is responsible for all filings and compliance-related advice for Charitable Impact Foundation.
