The Family Empowerment Fund

On May 16, 2019, LIFT will fortify its commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty for families with the launch of the Family Empowerment Fund in honor of LIFT Co-Founder Kirsten E. Lodal.

LIFT firmly believes that our members are the CEOs of their families. As such, they should be trusted to make the decisions that are best for them. The Family Empowerment Fund will support our cash transfers for members, establishing them as a cornerstone of our program model and putting money back in the hands of the people who need it most.

The launch of this fund ensures the families we serve are granted the resources they need to achieve their hopes and dreams. By redefining what it means to give and forging a new pathway out of poverty, LIFT hopes to create a more equitable future for all.
