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 charity. You choose when, where and whether it's a one time 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 that you can contribute to and receive a tax receipt for.  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 sent to the designated charity. Your name, fund name, and email address will be shared with the charity, unless you choose to grant anonymously.
