Minimum and maximum donation amount
Minimum donation amount
The minimum amount you can donate and receive a tax receipt for on CHIMP is $5. Because of processing fees imposed by financial service corporations, accepting donations under $5 isn't viable.
If you have a CHIMP Account, there is no minimum account balance that you need to maintain. We want to empower you to give on your terms.
Maximum donation amount
If you are giving by credit card, the maximum amount you can donate in one transaction is $9,999. This is the standard limit imposed by Canada's anti-money laundering laws. There is no limit when giving by cheque or publicly traded securities. Multiple credit card transactions that add up to more than $9,999 are permitted.
