CanadaHelp’s Great Canadian Giving Challenge 2019



May 29, 2019

Great Canadian Giving Challenge launches June 1, 2019
Summer Greetings from LIFT,

2019 is the fifth outing of the GivingChallenge and it’s a simple and effective way to stay involved with your favourite organizations. Every $1 donated to the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) through CanadaHelps between June 1 and June 30, 2019 will automatically enter us to win $10,000, provided by The GIV3 Foundation!
And an extra $10,000 would be so nice.
So, what can LIFT do with $10,000?
- $10,000 can cover the expenses for a dozen ASL interpreters for deaf and hard of hearing artists who wish to access LIFT’s filmmaking workshops
- $10,000 can fund five community film project’s production equipment and post-production facility rentals
- $10,000 is an investment into acquiring and upgrading equipment including our in-demand Super 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm camera packages
- $10,000 covers the costs of two mentees and mentors a year
For the 30 days, EVERY DONATION counts as part of the #GivingChallengeCA
By supporting LIFT you’re supporting independent filmmakers and artists. And for that we can’t thank you enough.
This year’s deadline to donate for the Great Canadian Giving Challenge is Sunday, June 30, 2019.
The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is an artist-run charitable organization dedicated to facilitating excellence in the moving image through media arts education and production resources. LIFT exists to provide support and encouragement for independent filmmakers and artists through affordable access to production, post-production and exhibition equipment; professional and creative development; workshops and courses; commissioning and exhibitions; artist-residencies; and a variety of other services. Founded in 1981 by a small collective, LIFT has since grown to become one of the foremost centres of its kind globally.
