My name is Rochelle Treister. I’m not a great organizer or motivator, I hate committee work, and I’m not rich enough to be a major philanthropist. But I do have a talent that I can put at the service of charities. I know where billions of dollars of unclaimed money are just waiting to be put to good use.
I decided that the biggest contribution I could make to non-profits would be to help them get back their own lost funds.
I also realized that if I found unclaimed funds for individuals and businesses, I could encourage them to donate part of this money to charitable organizations and boost these organizations even more.
So that’s what this site is all about:
- Finding unclaimed property for non-profits
- Finding unclaimed property for individuals and encouraging them to donate part or all of their windfall to a charity of their choice
- Finding unclaimed property for businesses and encouraging them to donate part or all of their windfall to a charity of their choice
Of course, if you’re a Canadian, it’s very simple to look for your property on the Bank of Canada’s unclaimed property site. But, it’s far less likely that you would search for your property in one of the hundreds of other sites that track and administer unclaimed funds outside of Canada. So that’s what this site will contain: claims with Canadian addresses that I find in foreign unclaimed property databases.
There is a search box that will allow you to search the claims by any text string and I will be categorizing the claims geographically as well, so you can look for claims belonging to your neighbours.
