Providing an Urgent Response to Injustices Facing Workers

The LIFT Fund’s blend of philanthropic dollars and commitment with the expertise and mission of labor puts funding where it will most effectively amplify the voices of workers and thus strengthen our economy, their families and communities across the country.
