Get Involved

The JFS Innovators 2023 luncheon is an opportunity to be inspired by a renowned keynote speaker, connect and network with local business and community leaders, while raising essential funds to provide JFS with the resources necessary to deliver programs and services that uplift the lives of individuals and families across the Lower Mainland.

Get involved this year, and help make an impact!

Every year, the Innovators Lunch Sponsorship Committee works to find corporations and local businesses whose values align with JFS and want to help them deliver on their vision: Lives uplifted, a world repaired.

Sponsors help underwrite the costs of the event to ensure 100% of donations go directly to supporting the over 3,000 children, youth, adults and seniors turning to JFS for help.
