More about Charitable Impact: Since Mind Growth Education is a for-profit company, we are collaborating with a social fundraising site named Charitable Impact Foundation whom issues tax receipts immediately for all donations processed on their platform. Because of this, they are only legally able to disburse to CRA-registered charities and non-profit organizations.
