SHIFT IN THE COMMUNITY

As Shift employees and as human beings, we believe in helping others achieve their full potential.

Volunteer Activities

At Shift, we’re not afraid to roll up our sleeves and get to work. We donate our time, sweat, and team spirit to two very worthwhile causes:

Habitat for Humanity Toronto gives low-income families a “hand up, not a hand out” by helping them earn their own home through a combination of sweat equity and a zero-down payment, interest-free mortgage. The Shift team volunteers on build sites to help build affordable homes for low-income families in the Toronto area.

Evergreen is a national, nonprofit organization that “inspires action to green cities” and improve the health of Canada’s environment, communities, and economy. Shift employees volunteer to plant trees in urban areas.

Our Salesforce expertise is our most valuable asset as a company, and we share the wealth with select nonprofit organizations by giving them our time and expertise at no charge. We have volunteered our time and expertise to help these charities learn to use Salesforce to promote their goals:

 

Glass Frog promotes a tangible, accountable, and transparent international aid model that delivers disaster relief to Haiti and other areas.

Raising the Village is a non-profit organization that helps communities recover from catastrophic events such as violent conflict, disease, and environmental disasters.
