‘Imagine, for a moment, if we weren’t taught Math in school—do you think there would still be engineers? I believe the same very much applies to charity. If it’s not taught and experienced, then how is it ever fully grasped?’ – John Bromley, CEO and Founder of CHIMP.
Increasingly, there is nowhere to learn how to give. As a result, fewer and fewer Canadians are giving to charity. At CHIMP, we passionately want this to change! That’s why in October we are launching a new Charitable Allowance Program that aims to develop and empower future donors through education.
How will the Charitable Allowance Program work?
The Charitable Allowance Program will provide children in schools with a monthly allowance of $10 in their CHIMP Account. They can choose the charities they would like to donate their money to, encouraging them to learn about giving and find causes they care about.
What is the program’s intent?
We hope the program will educate children about charitable giving, teach financial literacy and expose them to the great feeling that comes with making an impact. The ultimate goal is to encourage a generation of generous donors that give frequently and with purpose.
How can parents and teachers get involved?
We see a future where every child in Canada receives a Charitable Allowance. Both parents and teachers can get involved by teaching kids about your favourite causes and inspire them to want to create change.
CHIMP makes it easy for families to make giving a part of everyday life. Create an Account for free, deposit money when you would like to give, or set up a monthly recurring donation for all your favourite Canadian charities.
Join us in nurturing the future generation’s passion for creating change!
