About Us

As a Canadian-based social enterprise established in 2010, we seek to empower individuals and organizations to promote positive social change through volunteerism and community engagement.

Students are not graduating high school because they lost a piece of paper. Volunteers aren't being engaged because of archaic, paper-based inefficiencies.

We've developed three distinct software platforms in order to solve these problems.

We designed the Charity Republic volunteer management software for non-profits and charities with the help of over 60 volunteer coordinators. It was built by volunteer coordinators, for volunteer coordinators.

Our Hour Republic software is currently in use by over 35 school districts and universities, helping students and staff track and manage: hours, community service learning, volunteer activities, co-operative education, practicums, internships, and Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM).

“From a cooperative educator's point of view, it was a life saver. I no longer have to chase students, for 15 log sheets each, record hours, add hours, file log sheets, try to decipher handwriting and calculations… the Hour Republic program does that for us!”
Monica Ahrens, Head of Community-Based Education, York Region District School Board

Let us help your organization reach new heights of efficient service with our specialized and custom software solutions.

Our Story

Our founder, Popy Dimoulas-Graham (BSc, MSc), worked in the health sector, including as a senior outbreak epidemiologist, for over ten years of her professional life. It was through this experience that she gained unparalleled insight into analyzing emerging disease patterns and trends and solving complex public health issues.

As an avid volunteer since the age of 12, Popy's undying curiosity for ways to learn and grow by supporting communities in a meaningful way, and by volunteering both locally and abroad, led her to begin her journey into finding ways to promote volunteerism and ultimately empower students, teachers, volunteers, and volunteer coordinators to be engaging and efficient in their community endeavours.

It was a combination of her substantial volunteer experience and her time as an outbreak epidemiologist that has carried her to where she is today. And with the help of a dedicated team who share her passions for volunteerism and community engagement, Charity Republic and Hour Republic are propelling organizations into the future of engagement, management, and technology-based tracking.

Vision Statement

A world in which people give without personal gain, and seek empowerment through volunteerism and community engagement.

Mission Statement

To promote meaningful volunteerism and community engagement via accessible and efficient technology solutions.

Our Philosophy — Respect, Authenticity, and Curiosity


We respect the inherent value of differing ideas and opinions, even if we disagree with them. This means greeting every situation with kindness and the intent to create a win-win situation.


We strive to maintain authenticity in a rapidly changing and often superficial world. We expect all of our staff, from the CEO to the newest hire, to be true to themselves regardless of a changing situation or environment.


We have an insatiable appetite for learning how to improve our product. We are always curious what our customers like, dislike, and think, and we strive to always meet their needs.
