  • Sage launches incubator empowering Canadian nonprofits

March 2023

After a successful 2022 pilot program, Sage Foundation launches the Grow Program incubator, aimed at Canadian non-profits.

Sage announced the launch of its Canadian Grow Program incubator to empower nonprofit leaders in British Columbia.

The incubator is hosted by Sage Foundation, bringing together non-profit CEO’s and Executive Directors for a series of in-person business development sessions across the year. Each nonprofit is strategically matched with one or more Sage leaders based on their business objectives for the program. Each ‘match’ carefully selects a strategic project that would help the nonprofit amplify their impact in the community. By the end of program, nonprofits will have the tools to help execute their strategic projects or will have already started.

In 2022, Sage Foundation launched the incubator as a pilot program in Canada, proving to be a success to all four nonprofits that participated.

The 2023 cohort consists of five local non-profits in Richmond, British Columbia region.

  • Tri-Cities Friends of Refugees
  • Richmond Food Bank
  • Big Brother Big Sisters of Langley
  • Vancouver Food Runners
  • Earthwise Society

Sage Foundation was established in 2015 to connect with charities and non-profits globally to knock down barriers, mobilizing Sage colleagues, partners, and customers through impactful and innovative programmes. Through our strategic partnerships, Sage Foundation is supporting underrepresented groups to grow sustainable businesses, giving young people access to STEM skills and knocking down barriers to entrepreneurship in the developing world. Sage Foundation gives every colleague five days’ paid volunteering leave every year to spend time knocking down barriers locally, supporting causes that are important to them. To date, the foundation has raised USD $3 million to support nonprofit organizations globally and colleagues have volunteered 150,000 days to help causes they care about the most.
