Social Purpose Portfolio
Rise is an Ontario-based charity that provides low interest small business loans, training, and mentorship to entrepreneurs with mental health or addiction challenges. Through its programs, Rise provides access to capital and business mentoring to its recipients, who face barriers to employment, so they can pursue self-employment opportunities.
LIFT is partnering with Rise for up to 18 months to develop a strategic plan to scale the organization, so it can support more people in need. As part of this work, we will develop an implementation plan, fundraising strategy, and governance model to guide the organization’s growth over the next five years.
