Fees FAQ's

Chimp is the most affordable
 way to give in Canada

With Chimp, your charitable dollars go further, 
so you can make a bigger impact for less.

Are there other charges I should be aware of?

Online donations, like all transactions, always incur processing fees. It’s what banks and credit card companies charge for putting a transaction through. Chimp does not determine these fees but we do pass them on.

The amount deducted from your gift for processing fees depends on the payment method you choose.

Fees FAQ's

I want 100% of my gift to go to charity. Is there a way to do this?

Yes! With Chimp, you have the option to cover processing fees. Simply check the “cover processing costs” checkbox immediately underneath the gift amount.

Will I receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the money I donate into Chimp?

Yes. When you donate via Chimp, you will receive a tax receipt from the Chimp Foundation for 100% of your donation. Processing fees don’t affect your tax receipt.
