Impact Investing Education in Canada

Rally Philanthropy

A foundation on which to strengthen the sector

Rally Philanthropy is an educational foundation, formed and initially funded by Upkar Arora, CEO of Rally Assets. Through Rally Philanthropy, our goal is to partner with other charitable organizations, nonprofits and other organizations to conduct and deliver research, education and training on impact investing.

We set up Rally Philanthropy to advance education in the areas of responsible investing, impact investing, social finance, social entrepreneurship, conscious capitalism and community development. With a commitment to public good, we share the work widely so that it benefits large audiences and multiple stakeholders. Rally Philanthropy is a registered charity (734407315 RR0001), having been granted charitable status by Canada Revenue Agency in September 2019.

Rally Assets has committed to donating 5% of its profits on an annual basis to support and further the work of the foundation.

We welcome parties interested in donating, collaborating and partnering to advance the mandate of the foundation.
