Your contribution is an irrevocable donation to GiveClear Foundation, and is immediately tax deductible.

Step 2: Designate The Funds

Time to have fun! Find what inspires or speaks to you and give. Once you've contributed to your Giving Fund you can choose to grant funds right away or wait until later when you have more time to find the right fit. Grant to any registered Canadian charity. You choose when, where and whether it's a onetime grant or a recurring grant from your GiveClear fund.

Have Kids? Make It A Family Affair

Take part together as a family! Getting children involved in choosing where the funds go is a fantastic way for them to take ownership and experience the power of giving.  Your children can create their own Giving Funds and you can contribute to it and connect on what causes you are supporting, allowing you to experience the impact of your giving together. Contact us to link your accounts.

Tracking your giving through the GiveClear platform

Step 3: Track Your Giving

Track all of your contributions and grants in one place through your GiveClear dashboard. You will receive a confirmation once the funds have been received by the designated charity, which are given with a reference to your fund. If you choose to grant anonymously the designated charity will not receive your information.
