Support your community and Share the Upside!

The Upside Foundation is an exciting venture that lets Canadian startups give back to our society. Supported by startups, VCs and associations, the process is simple: Donate OPTIONS (not cash) and when you have that huge exit, those options convert into cash for Canadian charities.

Canadian Partner of the Pledge 1% Movement

Pledge 1% is a global movement spearheaded by Salesforce Foundation and others to inspire companies around the world about the benefits of early stage corporate philanthropy. In the partnership, The Upside Foundation provides the Canadian legal and accounting platform for startups to donate options or warrants which are ultimately donated to Canadian charities.
