Support this Giving Group
You need a Chimp account to accept the invite and join the Giving Group
A Giving Group can help you rally people together to raise money for a cause. It's quick to setup, simple to share, and built to make fundraising fun and easy.
If you create a Giving Group you automatically become the group's administrator. You can invite others to join, and when people accept the invitation they become members of the group. You can also decide whether you'd like your group to be private or public. If the group is set to public, it's open for anyone to join and donate to.
Anyone can give money to a Giving Group, but only the group's administrator can give money from the group to a charity or multiple charities.
What can I do with money raised by my Giving Group?
Money raised through a Chimp Giving Group can be given to any registered charity in Canada, including places of worship, universities, municipalities, and RCAAAs. It can also be given to another Giving Group or to a person, who can then give it to a charity of their choice.
