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.

For Vancouver’s Dom Fricot, music has always been a form of therapy, a way to explore and share the traumas of real life. A singer-songwriter, far removed from the clichéd tropes that are so closely associated with the term. Dom’s music brings to mind the widescreen, melodic pop of Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins, and fuses it with the influence of more modern songwriters from Bon Iver to Sufjan Stevens. It’s in the live setting, whether as a solo artist of part of side-project The Folk Road Show, that Dom’s talents truly come alive; emotional, funny, and with the spirit of a story-teller and the vision of an artist – a songwriter with the world at his feet, and the desire to explore every inch of it, and one who makes you feel like you’re walking every step with him.
