Predictive Success Foundation has been proudly giving back to the communities we serve for the past 15 years, and we are committed to continue doing so. Our belief in direct-to-source donation is our key foundational element.

Predictive Success is a community of driven and innovative employees. “Work hard, play hard” is the way we function. We are passionate about talent optimization a.k.a. enabling individuals to become the best version of themselves. This goes hand in hand with the health, research, and education initiatives we support. Although we have had tremendous growth, we come from humble roots, the small town of Whitby, Ontario. We recognize the privilege we have being part of a wonderful business environment here in North America. All our employees are empowered and encouraged to find causes that they are passionate about. We are committed to impacting and inspiring our community and beyond.

To date, Predictive Success has donated over $500,000 in cash and another $200,000 in services in kind to our local community, non-profits, and we even partner with organizations that share our values.

How Exactly Do We Contribute?

We generously give our talent, time, and funds to our local communities and beyond. From hosting charity fundraisers to our annual turkey donations and even donating to causes that affect families worldwide.

In Our Local Community

St. Vincent’s Kitchen

St. Vincent’s Kitchen, part of Durham Outlook, served its first meal on October 15, 1990, and has been delivering fresh meals to those in need 365 days a year ever since. The kitchen serves between 150-200 meals a day and over 1.4 million since opening. Located in our neighboring town, Oshawa, our team annually volunteers and prepares a meal (and does the clean up) at St. Vincent’s Kitchen.

Through ongoing research, education, and innovation, Princess Margaret continues to be on the frontiers of medical, surgical, and radiation oncology, embracing the latest technology and international best practices and setting standards for patient care. Research and funding for immunotherapy and specifically throat cancer discovery research is a cause close to the Lahey family’s hearts.

Ronald McDonald House Charities

Ronald McDonald House Charities believes in keeping families close. They give families a place to stay together; close to their sick child in the hospital because when families stay together, sick children get stronger. The Predictive Success Foundation fundraising team led by Jennifer Lahey, Managing Principal, dedicates time and resources to drive awareness to this great cause and raise much-needed funds to ensure the vitality and growth of this program. In fact, since joining this program in 2016, our team at Predictive Success has been the leading corporate fundraising group.

Their farms that flourish as a result of this gift will feed and finance their children’s growth and help them take the steps to overcome poverty and keep their girls healthy and in school where they should be.
