Project and Partnership Inquiries

LIFT accepts project and partnership inquiries from non-profit organizations and collectives on an ongoing basis. One-off projects are welcome as schedules and budgets permit, however LIFT is primarily interested in cultivating long-term partnerships with other organizations and collectives. These engagements can include capacity building consulting for emerging groups and project management along with LIFT equipment, facilities, instructors and mentors.

LIFT welcomes requests from all organizations sharing its values of social justice and freedom of expression, however only a small portion of projects can be accepted in any year.

Submissions should include:
– Name and description of organization
– Name, phone number and email of contact at organization
– Description of proposed project and exact request of support from LIFT
– Detailed timeline
– Detailed budget

Please allow 4 to 8 weeks for an evaluation of your proposal, depending on its complexity and current workload.

IMPORTANT: Support letters from LIFT for organization grant applications will not be provided until a contract regarding the proposed project has been approved and signed by both parties.

Inquiries should be sent to LIFT’s Executive Director at
