No Monkey Business Here

We would like to kick off 2015 by recognizing one of our fantastic new supporters.

A great champion of literacy, The Chimp Foundation helped make our very first fundraising campaign a success. During our Literacy is Life Team Trivia Challenge in September, The Foundation connected us with literacy supporters from B.C. and across Canada to raise over $25,000.

Their support from the beginning was impressive, to say the least. Our client success specialist, Kyla Hackett, and other Chimp staff offered valuable advice, provided onsite fundraising and technical support at our event, and best of all, their online fundraising tool was free, without transaction fees.

We would like to acknowledge the tremendous support we’ve received from Chimp over the past year. Our Team Trivia Challenge exceeded its revenue goal by $10,000 thanks to matching gifts from Bienfaissance Foundation which applied directly to online gifts using Chimp technology.

A blog post and video by Chimp featuring Decoda’s trivia event put us on the map with other Canadian charities using peer-to-peer fundraising, which makes events more cost-effective and successful.

We also benefitted from Chimp social media campaigns on Giving Tuesday and National Philanthropy Day.

On behalf of everyone at Decoda, thank you Chimp! We look forward to working with you in 2015 and the Second Annual Literacy is Life Team Trivia Challenge.

Chimp is a web-based tool that any Canadian can use to make a donation or fundraise for any charity of their choice.  A contraction of “Charitable Impact Foundation,” Chimp, a public foundation, has given more than $53 million to charitable causes since 2008.
