Q+A with Tania Carnegie
Posted by: Nicole Mezzarobba
We are pleased to share short Q+A with our newest board member, Tania Carnegie. Tania leads KPMG’s Community Leader strategy, which focuses the firm’s internal resources and knowledge to drive social change and sustainability. The Community Leader strategy follows a venture philanthropy model, similar to LIFT’s, which identifies and prioritizes social needs in KPMG communities, and directs the firm’s expertise and funding to enhance the effectiveness of partner not-for-profit organizations. We are very excited for the leadership and extensive experience Tania brings to our board.
What excites you about being on the Board of Directors for LIFT?
I look forward to working with LIFT to position venture philanthropy as an effective means to support not-for-profit organizations in Canada. The LIFT model ensures we can identify effective not-for-profit organizations, support their growth, and increase their social impact. By investing in and expanding these not-for-profit organizations, LIFT will enable Canadians to realize their full potential as healthy, productive, active citizens.
What do you see LIFT accomplishing over the next five years?
Over the next five years, I look forward to LIFT establishing a robust portfolio of not-for-profit organizations, and partnering with them to achieve significant, positive social impact in the lives of Canadians and their communities.
How can LIFT support corporate social responsibility in Canada?
LIFT can play a key role in supporting corporate social responsibility by identifying innovative not-for-profit organizations and connecting them with corporate sector partners that offer the expertise they need to become more sustainable and effective.
