Give to the Cause You Believe In.
We’ve been hearing from Canadians that they want to donate more, but it’s difficult figuring out which charities to support. With the Impact Ambassador program, we’re connecting you to passionate leaders in their fields and talented student research teams who have opinions on which charities you can support today to make a difference.
No matter what cause you want to support, they're here for you.
Thanks to The Lake Family’s All One Fund's gift and our donors' generosity, we were able to match $79,679.50 and support the causes you believe in. We are extremely grateful!

Who are Impact Ambassadors?
Impact Ambassadors are engaged and passionate advocates for a particular cause. An Impact Ambassador creates an Impact Portfolio, which is a group of charities hand-picked for their proven ability to drive significant change in this area.
Some Impact Portfolios have been developed with, or solely by, a team of UBC and SFU analysts from the Vancouver Social Value Fund and Social Innovation Academy programs. Learn more here.
