Meet the Panelists

John Bromley, CEO & Founder at Charitable Impact

John Bromley grew up with charity at the core of his family’s values. He started his career in corporate finance working with PwC and RBC Capital Markets. He then went to work with one of the world’s foremost experts in charity law, his father Blake Bromley. After developing an in-depth understanding of the complex world underpinning the charity sector, John recognized a need to make giving more accessible and more effective. He saw that while wanting to help others comes naturally, knowing how to make a difference through charitable giving does not. With that in mind, John went on to launch Charitable Impact. He has spoken at TEDx and was named one of Business in Vancouver’s 40 under 40.
