LIFT Philanthropy Partners is a national, not-for-profit venture philanthropy organization in Canada.
We invest in building the capacity, sustainability and impact of charities, non-profits and social enterprises working to remove barriers to health, education, skills development and employment for vulnerable and at-risk Canadians.
LIFT provides social purpose organizations with a combination of management support from our impact team, pro bono business expertise from our partner network, and strategic funding. These organizations consistently tell us this combination, and our passion for their success, is a more effective investment than money alone.
“Partners” is in our name for a good reason. LIFT is supported by a network of leading companies and business experts who contribute pro bono expertise to our social purpose portfolio, and investors who provide funding to support our mission. We are also part of an alliance of leading venture philanthropy firms internationally.
We aim to be a leader in advancing positive and lasting social change.
We strengthen social purpose organizations to make them sustainable and effective at delivering social impact that improves the health and productivity of Canadians.
