A place to belong

We believe in building relationships, creating experiences, and developing people, so we can expand and strengthen the kingdom of God

MESSAGE from Shannon Dean:
By donating your change, you are partnering with Camp Chestermere to make a significant impact in the lives of children. By giving only about a $1 a day, you can help:

  • Send children to camp, who otherwise couldn't afford it, through Jar-Jar's Kids Program. This program gives children the opportunity to experience life-changing moments while establishing life-long friendships at camp.
  • Further our Bear Hug initiative, to improve our buildings, renovate our facilities, and expand our Arts Programs. These upgrades increase the experience of everyone who comes to Camp Chestermere.
  • Continue the tradition of Camp Chestermere as A Place To Belong.
  • About The Giving Tool

    We licensed with Donate Your Change to create RoundUp Giving accounts. DYC powers a custom, high-integrity, web-based giving tool that allows you, our valuable donor, to give through roundups on your everyday purchases.

    You choose which of your chequing or debit or credit card accounts to give from, and how much you want to round up every day every time you spend. Every debit or credit card purchase or bank transaction you make will automatically round up based on the limits you set and the difference will go to our mission and work.

    With DYC, giving is easy and automatic.

    Giving is safe. We've carefully vetted DYC.

    Donate Your Change meets the highest of internet-banking security protocols. The giving tool was developed and integrated with the Finicity® database network of banks/ credit card companies. Security screening was conducted by Cigital, Inc., a leading, global software security and consulting firm.

    Your financial information is encrypted and secured. Your spending habits are not recorded or tracked. You can make daily giving part of your lifestyle without worrying about security or privacy.

    Control your DYC roundup account from your phone or tablet or on the web. Change your setup features any time you like to accommodate your giving. View your donations in real time.

    Yes! I want to sign up to give my loose change.


    Sign-Up Requirements and Helps

    Have you ever viewed your Bank or Credit Card accounts online before?

    If not, you will need to enroll in online banking directly with your financial institutions. This is the level of security that Donate Your Change is built upon. You will then be able to Link Bank accounts and Credit Cards to your charity using your online banking profile, ensuring the highest level of security at all times.

    If yes, have your online Banking information ready as you complete the sign-up process with DonateYourChange as you support your chosen charity. Simply follow the step by step prompts when you click "Sign Up Now". Simple and Secure.

    During the signup process, as you Link your accounts to your DYC charity, your bank will ask you to verify your identity to complete this connection. Providing your bank with your Online info verifies your credentials and completes this Link. Any banking and security information requested is secure between you and your bank. DYC does not see or store any of this information.

    Refer to the FAQs below if you require further understanding or download our STEP BY STEP GUIDE here.

    NOTE: Donate Your Change Canada will never contact you requesting your personal information or account passwords. You will be the only one who is able to Link your accounts and make changes to your giving profile. You may be notified if an account has changed or a card has expired, but it is up to you to respond. You are always in control of your giving.

    Sign-Up FAQs

    Why will I need my online banking information?

    This level of security ensures that only you will be the one Linking your accounts to the DYC funding tool. You are the only one with this secure information and this information is not stored on our system. You are simply authorizing DYC to process your round ups for your charity.

    While signing up, I have connected with my bank profile and I see all my cards and accounts. I don't want everything Linked; what do I do?

    You may have many accounts in your personal bank profile and you can exclude any you do not wish to Link at this time or unlink these in the future.

    Now that my profile is set up, do I have to do anything else?

    There is nothing else that must be done. Your account will continue to actively donate to your charity, with no additional effort on your part. You will have to update any accounts or cards that expire to keep them active.

    I see many options populate when I try to select my financial institution. Which one do I choose?

    With many institutions, it may look like there are many options to choose from but only one will truly work with your account sign-in. If you select one and receive an error, try the next one. (For example, American Express populates over 20 options, but only one will be associated with your card.) If you require further help on this, please contact support@donateyourchange.ca for assistance.

    I keep getting an error. Am I doing something wrong?

    With over 18,000 institutions, there are daily system and security updates from many sources, and errors can be expected. While selecting the right financial institution, you may have to try a number of the options until you get the one that works. For more details with this process, please contact support@donateyourchange.ca and we can investigate further.

    About Donate Your Change

    Established 2016, Donate Your Change is dedicated to helping non-profit organizations raise the funds necessary to make a positive difference in our culture, both in the US and Canada. We are particularly interested in supporting non-profits engaged in providing food and shelter for the poor, finding cures for diseases, and those that are providing encouragement and vocational training for the underemployed or unemployed.

    Donate Your Change employs a technology-based approach that is unique and highly sustainable. Funds are raised by participating, licensed organizations without requiring people to change anything about their lifestyle or day-to-day activities and they are raised 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. All funds generated through Donate Your Change are tax receiptable since our clients are registered charities.

    Donate Your Change believes small change can make a big impact. Fundraising no longer has to be restricted to those with large bank accounts. Because virtually anyone at any income level can participate as a donor using our software, donor fatigue is eliminated for both the donor and the organization.
