About The LIFT Foundation
The LIFT Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3), was founded by Chris Vizzi in 2013. LIFT’s primary goal was to address the growing disparity between the rich and poor in Orange County, California. Over time, the vision evolved to partner with multiple organizations that focus on a variety of causes, including the education of at-risk homeless children, feeding the hungry and the empowerment of single mothers facing grave financial hardships. Their award-winning work was recently featured by Barron’s Magazine and has been honored by Project Self Sufficiency for their pivotal fundraising efforts over the past year.
