Community Building

As a small business, we’re not waiting until we get big and rich to support the causes that matter to us most.  We believe in ‘Philanthrepreneurship’—approaching our philanthropic and community giving with an entrepreneurial mindset. We try to make good corporate citizenship an everyday practice, not a donation cheque at the end of the fiscal year.

Overlap President and Chief Relationship Officer, Lisa Grogan, is a member of UNICEF Canada’s ‘25th Team’, a 60-member women’s leadership group supporting maternal health and childhood well-being initiatives in five developing countries.

Overlap’s CEO Brock Hart is a board member with the Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), in addition to his role with Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF).

This isn’t just about leadership—Overlappers are all engaged and community minded. Our team volunteers all the time (because they want to, not because we tell them to), such as for House of Friendship and CMHA ‘Ride Don’t Hide’.
