The Many Faces of SHIFT


Will you consider making a donation to support SHIFT?

In less than ten years, SHIFT has made a difference for people in their midlife, serving as a compass to guide them as they navigate work/life transitions. Older workers, laid off during the Great Recession, remain out of work longer and are less likely to be re-employed than any other age group. Many of the 77 million midlifers approaching retirement intend to continue pursuing lives of purpose.

When you give to SHIFT, your donated funds are used to run the year-round programs that support our mission of providing support, education and workshops to people in midlife navigating work or life transition. The bulk of the money we receive goes directly to these initiatives. A portion is also used to serve day-to-day needs and operational expenses so we can continue to offer these programs to our members. Your generous support will help members of the growing SHIFT Community move toward sustainable lives that matter—and benefit society as a whole.
