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.
