Giving Back Our Impact in the Community

At Sophia, we recognize that it’s not just what we do but also how we do it as a business that impacts the world around us. We seek to create new models of investment services delivery that have a positive impact on not only our clients but also our community. In the following sections, you will see the different ways we have been able to live out the core beliefs of Sophia Financial. Beliefs can be meaningless without corresponding actions, and we know that action is what delivers impact.

Community Education
From Wealth Academy to Empowered Investing, Sophia Financial holds workshops and seminars throughout the year to empower people to lead a knowledgeable and financially successful life.

Giving Back
Sophia Financial is dedicated to numerous charitable initiatives. We share our resources – financially as well as our wisdom and time. 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 connect with neighbours and community members.

Whether it’s serving a meal or providing pro-bono financial services to the vulnerable, 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.


Mission: To touch lives and build a better future for women and their families.


Mission: To elevate the visibility, influence and contribution of women leaders.

Dress for Success

Mission: Promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Yoga Outreach

Mission: Provides complimentary yoga classes to those who otherwise may not have access such as those in prisons, shelters and institutions.

The Forum

Mission: To help women entrepreneurs access the resources and community they need to thrive in business.

Mission: To provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for self-identifying women, from all walks of life, who live and/or work in the Downtown Eastside.

These foundations and organizations do work in the community that aligns with the core beliefs of Sophia Financial Group. We are always open to learning about new ways to contribute to our community, so please make us aware of the charitable organizations you believe in – particularly if they are working in support of financial empowerment and self-sufficiency.

We very much appreciate your support of our events that provide opportunities for education and training of our women members. You have been instrumental in helping us fulfill our mission of promoting, encouraging and empowering women and girls in science, engineering and technology.
