Founder and CEO, Raised80s
Raised80s was created with the vision of living in a world with an equitable economic landscape and workplace. Founder, Jacey Schnarr, was inspired to disrupt the current client and employee gifting process to make it more personable and sustainable. Raised80s helps corporate clients source gifts from diverse and ethical businesses, allowing brands to display their commitment to uplifting their community. Additionally, this mission gives Jacey and her team an opportunity to amplify the voices of new merchants, makers, and artisans. Raised80s has committed to donating 2% of revenues to charities they are passionate about including the New Leaf Foundation, Tree Canada, Girls E-Mentorship and Ten Oaks Project. These charities were chosen collaboratively based on input from the whole team. The common theme of their philanthropic work has emerged as empowering youth and the environment as these topics resonate with the entire organization.
