BC-based Chimp (charitable + impact) is an online marketplace and bank account for charity that empowers individuals and businesses to be thoughtful and purposeful about their charitable giving. To date, more than $79 million has been given through Chimp, and more than 50,000 Canadians have helped change the world through Chimp.
Bosa Properties Foundation, via Chimp, is empowering homebuyers at their Victoria Promontory development by giving them the opportunity to make an impact on their community.
Purchasers can choose where a portion of Bosa’s $177,000 contribution to the local community is allocated. Each homeowner can access the Chimp online platform and select a charity of their choice, based on where they would like to see their donation made.
“The idea of empowering an entire group to make an impact in their community is innovative and we haven’t seen it before,” says John Bromley, the founder and CEO of Chimp. “Via this new program, Bosa Properties Foundation is working a grassroots level to support charities in Victoria.”
Homeowners can select whatever charity they support, or they can choose from local non profits selected by the Bosa Properties Foundation.
