Our Values

Collaboration. Sharing. Openness.


Our Beginnings, Identity & Work

Our Beginnings

Framework emerged in 2003 to connect awesome nonprofit organizations with young, talented professionals who want to volunteer their time. We bring these great people together at our signature Timeraiser events—a night of art, music, and conversation that’s equal parts fun and social good.


A decade later we launched the Techraiser program, this time addressing the challenge of improving digital skills in the nonprofit sector. Through our workshops and online resources, we’re helping build a more tech-savvy social good labour force.

Our Identity

Framework is an agile entity; we have action and initiative in our organizational DNA. We work in the digital cloud and embrace new technologies as a way to work smarter, but we have solid roots in the values of the social good sector.


We are champions of accountability and transparency, and believe that sharing and collaborating is the way forward.

Our Work

Framework is an incubator of initiatives that bring a fresh perspective to the wicked problems facing both the nonprofit and cultural sectors; future projects will focus on capacity building for emerging artists. Stay in touch to find out where we’ll go next.
