“Giving back is not about being rich. Giving back is about being engaged with your community.”

Shoulders Of Titans Podcast Interview #049 with John Bromley:

John Bromley facilitates benevolence. He provides strategic advice about financing and organizational structure to local, national and international charities, foundations, non-profits, private and public companies. As the CEO and founder of CHIMP, John develops web-based, software platforms that encourage mass awareness of and participation in the benevolent sector and describes the importance of philanthropy.

John has always been around charity in one way or another, mostly because of his dad, Blake Bromley, who’s one of the world’s leading charity lawyers. So after university and a few years working in corporate finance at RBC Capital Markets and PricewaterhouseCoopers, he joined Blake, and we started Benefic Group to fill the void in specialized expertise in charity law, strategy and policy in Canada. Benefic has worked with hundreds of local and international donors, charities, foundations, governments, non-profits and for-profits to provide strategic and legal advice, and arrange several billion dollars in giving.

In recent years, John has shifted his focus to how we use technology, social media and internet culture to improve charity. In how the internet is starting to change the way people interact with, transact with and learn about charity. And in working to shape charity’s entry into online culture, so that technology improves, and doesn’t harm charity by increasing public access and decreasing charity’s costs.

In fact, Chimp recently surpassed the $200 million mark in processed charitable donations. $100 million of that has been given just over the past 12 months.

“If you’re the average Canadian or America, you only give to charities when you ask. So that’s a problem. Unless there’s someone trying to sell you, you’re not giving.”

“Be more scared when people aren’t making mistakes than when they are making mistakes. People will always make mistakes. The problem with “mistakes that aren’t being made” is the problems still exist… you just can’t see them.”

“Do not accept the status quo – unless you really choose to.”

“Giving back is not about being rich. Giving back is about being engaged with your community.”

“The difference between entrepreneurs/ donors with other people is the willingness to do something; the willingness to act on impulses and ideas.”
