Making the world a better place is a core focus for Grit Capital. We support a number of charity initiatives and frequently host events to raise awareness and funds for select charity ventures. In addition, we allocate time to volunteering in our community and abroad. Grit Capital founders have assisted in raising over $350,000 for charities we are involved in.
Grand Commission – The Grand Commission is focussed on high ROI innovative fundraising to support targeted solutions. Event costs underwritten by lead corporate sponsorship to ensure that maximum proceeds go right to the bottom line. We held our first inaugural event in June 2017 with GMP Capital as lead sponsor. The event raised over $600k for Covenant House through a charity trading day and gala at the Ritz. Covenant House is Canada’s largest agency serving at risk, homeless and trafficked youth, providing the widest range of services and supports to as many as 250 a day. In 2018, we are hosting our second event with an innovative twist accepting cryptocurrencies for donation, table & ticket purchases and featuring a crypto trading day.

Commission Yourself – an Action-Packed day of Benevolence. Our first event was held in July 2017 on beautiful lake Rosseau in Muskoka. It featured a pro-am bike ride with three-time Canadian Olympian medal winner Curt Harnett and innovative dock party featuring internationally renowned celebrity photographer George Pimentel, ski and flyboard show by Muskoka Wake and cocktail mixology by Tromba Tequila. The event raised over $60k in it’s first year and attracted celebrities such as the Real House Wives of Muskoka, Kevin O’Leary and Shinan Govani who covered the event in Toronto Storeys.
