At the Upward! Foundation, we believe in making a positive difference in the world through programs and resources that help individuals thrive.
Founded in 2020, the Upward! Foundation was established as a charitable organization through the spirit of innovation and collaboration that permeates UnitedLex.
Guided by our deep commitment to community, we invest in programs and resources that address immediate humanitarian needs, uphold equity and inclusion, enable shared prosperity through education, and ensure the sustainability of our environment and world.
We support programs that promote the well-being and upward economic mobility of individuals and communities impacted by health crises, natural disasters, and other catastrophes.
We believe in the power of diverse backgrounds and experiences as a driver of innovation and creativity. We support dismantling bias and inequity in the workplace and in educating future generations about technology.
Promoting preservation and protection of conservation efforts creates a world in which people and nature flourish. We partner with organizations with a shared belief in environmental stewardship globally.
In 2019, UnitedLex initiated programs to aid employees and their families most impacted by the global pandemic. This immediate support was the first of many initiatives that are now supported by the Foundation.
We remain committed to listening, learning, and building the kinds of relationships with partners who share our belief that the success of a business is directly related to its ability to make a positive impact on communities worldwide.
The foundation provides financial support to The Dana Farber Cancer Institute, a leading comprehensive cancer treatment and research institution.
Multi-year grants are provided to The Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
Employees participate in company-wide initiatives in support of Girls Who Code, a nonprofit organization committed to closing the gender gap in technology and computer science.
The future depends on the sustainable work we do today. The initiatives we support through the Upward! Foundation align with three of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.
To reduce inequalities, policies should be universal in principle, paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.
