Giving Back

Sophia Financial is dedicated to numerous charitable initiatives as we realize there is much more to philanthropy than a charitable tax credit. Direct participation is as important as, if not more important than, financial support for many of our charitable partners, and Sophia Financial Group is always keen to get outside and interact with neighbours and community members.

Whether it’s serving a meal or providing pro-bono financial services to vulnerable women, we seek to serve our communities in ways that are respectful and sustainable. Below is a list of the organizations that are close to our hearts.

  • YWCA: Nominations Committee for Women of Distinction Awards; Connect to Success and the Bursary Awards Committee.

We are always open to learning about new ways to contribute to our community, so please make us aware of the charitable organizations that you favour – particularly if they are working in support of financial empowerment and self-sufficiency.
