Investment Readiness Program

LIFT Philanthropy Partners

LIFT Philanthropy Partners is a national, non-profit organization that believes vulnerable and at-risk Canadians deserve access to the tools and opportunities they need to thrive in society. With offices in Toronto and Vancouver, it works with social purpose organizations (SPOs) across the country.

LIFT leverages our relationships and experience through providing hands-on management and pro bono contributions from our national network of leading experts and businesses. By applying an adaptive business mindset, LIFT is a trusted partner and national leader in supporting SPOs to improve their operations, accountability and measurement practices, so they can deliver meaningful, lasting impact in Canada.

LIFT has developed a suite of modules based on its work with SPOs across the country and on the latest evidence supporting SPOs to be investment ready. The modules are designed to prepare SPOs for the emerging opportunities in Canada’s social finance market.

LIFT’s service offering supports SPOs through the investment readiness journey by building organizational capacity, through a cohort, peer-to-peer learning approach, in the areas of: governance; revenue diversification; impact measurement; and communicating impact. While LIFT cannot guarantee that all program participants will secure investment, organizations that complete LIFT’s modules will significantly enhance their chances of securing investment.
