The Home Front
The 'home front' refers to the efforts of civilians when their nation is at war.
The Home Front is a volunteer organization spearheaded by The Upside Foundation, acting as a central hub to help Frontline Healthcare Workers get the support they need during COVID-19. We want to keep our heroes safe and help you to act as heroes as well!
Through our network of over 100 volunteers we are working towards 3 goals:
1) Activating personal and corporate donations to purchase PPE, supplies, and support charities that are responding on the front lines,
2) Encouraging and facilitating in-kind donations of the PPE, supplies and services that hospitals and other high priority groups need, and
3) Connecting those who want to help with the resources, tools, connections and knowledge they need to understand where they can make a difference and take meaningful action.
The Upside Foundation
The Upside Foundation is a registered charity that enables the Canadian tech community to give back. Typically, we do this by enabling founders of early-stage, high-growth Canadian companies to build social responsibility into their business by pledging equity to the charity of their choice. Now, in the face of COVID-19, The Upside Foundation is helping those companies to think about how they can give back, and is spearheading the Home Front initiative.
Funds raised from this campaign will be directed to charities with the highest needs, in service of this overall mandate. Our team is working to deeply understand the greatest challenges facing the Canadian healthcare system and our frontline healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19, so that we can ensure your donations will go straight to the areas of greatest need.
Donations to this campaign will receive a full tax receipt.
5% of donated funds will go to support The Upside Foundation's work to enable The Home Front.
