My name is Daryl Hatton


My Twitter profile tagline says a lot about me…

CEO @ConnectionPoint + @FundRazr, entrepreneur, cardiac survivor, foodie, whisky nut, philosopher, mentor, father, friend, #KingOfGastown

I decided to experiment with the idea of living out loud. Time will tell if it is a good idea…


ConnectionPoint is my scale-up company. Our mission is to redefine philanthropy and change the way causes, corporations and consumers work together to fund the most important projects in the world. We deliver our solution through a number of different brands:


FundRazr is our enterprise crowdfunding platform that helps individuals, nonprofits, entrepreneurs and social enterprises raise money for almost any cause.


CampaignHQ is our nonpartisan crowdfunding platform for candidates in any level of election: municipal, regional or national.


COllaborative COmmunity PAYments is our crowdfinance platform. With it, brand customers use crowdfunding to help finance the purchase of a product or service.


Sponsifi is our platform for corporations to integrate measurable and effective crowdfunding and corporate philanthropy into their corporate social responsibility programs.


Nonprofit Directorships

I believe that our communities are stronger when we work together. Sometimes this requires a more formal relationship and involvement. I’m proud to be a director of the following nonprofit organizations.


PayPal Giving Fund Canada is an independently registered charity (CRA# 812867752RR0001) that uses PayPal technology and financial support to raise new funds for causes, without charging donors or charities for our services.



The National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (NCFA Canada) is a financial innovation ecosystem that provides education, market intelligence, industry stewardship, networking and funding opportunities and services to thousands of community members and works closely with industry, government, partners, and affiliates to create a vibrant and innovative fintech and funding industry in Canada.  Decentralized and distributed, NCFA is engaged with global stakeholders and helps incubate projects and investment in fintech, alternative finance, crowdfunding, peer-to-peer finance, payments, digital assets and tokens, blockchain and cryptocurrency, regtech, and insurtech sectors.  


The West Coast Whisky Society was originally formed by a group of friends who had a passion for whisky, brought together to celebrate, educate and partake in the “Water of Life – Uisgea Beatha … Whisky.”



Director / Advisor / Mentor Roles

As part of my own growth as a human and a leader, I’m fortunate to have a number of companies and executives who allow me to join them on their journey.

  1. I work for Volunteer Victoria in Victoria BC. We are an umbrella agency that has 300+ member charities. We provide a range of services to help these agencies achieve their vision. While you need no validation from me Mr. Hatton, it is a massive understatement to say that you are an impressive human. I believe that in May of this year you provided a webinar “Fundraising Trends For 2022”. I know that our market would benefit from accessing your gifts, knowledge and experience in this area so I write to inquire as to where you might consider providing this webinar through Volunteer Victoria on a day/date/time that works for your schedule? We can compensate you at $100.00 per hour.

    I appreciate you considering this partnership. Thank you kindly.
