Are your donations and corporate social responsibility budgets generating the intended results?

LIFT turns good causes into great investments.

We believe investments in health, education, skills development & employment can truly transform lives and make Canada a healthier, more productive country overall.

LIFT offers several options for individuals, corporations, foundations and governments to support our mission: strengthening social purpose organizations (SPOs) so that they can impact the lives of more Canadians.

The SPOs we work with say that what they value most are the resources, focus and passion we bring to helping them achieve their missions.

LIFT Factor Efficiency Fund: Investors that wish to support our overall efforts can contribute directly to the LIFT Factor Efficiency Fund. Alternatively, financial contributions may be directed to one or more of the following funds in LIFT’s Purpose Portfolio:

Health Impact Fund

Supports organizations focused on addressing issues affecting the health and well-being of Canadians including physical inactivity and chronic disease.

Education Impact Fund

Supports organizations focused on solving barriers to educational success and lifelong learning, including functional and financial literacy and high school completion.

Skills Development & Employment Impact Fund

Supports organizations that help Canadians experiencing barriers to finding and keeping gainful employment by offering training and other employment-related services.

Supports organizations that offer services to Aboriginal Canadians on and off-reserve – including Metis, Inuit, and First Nations – in LIFT’s impact areas of health, education, skills development & employment.
