Who We Are

We're a private family foundation funded by David and Wendy Novak. It was established in 1999 as a charitable trust to provide charitable grants and scholarships to people in need.


Leadership Development

The Lift a Life Foundation is working to invest and scale leadership curriculum that teaches students to think and act like leaders while making a difference in the world, preparing students to be 21st-century leaders. We believe that by scaling these leadership programs, we can ignite potential leaders to make a difference in the lives of others and create a better culture.
