Life is Full of Transformation
At Solera, we believe in second chances.
We believe as a company, over 75 countries-wide and 5,000 employees strong, that we can make a difference in the lives of others by leveraging the Solera Way.
Our Uncommon giving is based on a set of principles that our employees practice in their daily lives. Work with focused initiative on the 20 that will drive the 80. Maintain efficiency in order to eliminate waste and maximize output. Work as a team and always take accountability for the past, present and the future.
Through our LIFT program, we strive to enable second chances by providing the 20 tools to those in need in order for them to take the 80 accountability and create a sustainable impact in their lives and community.
Thanks to the hard work and generosity of Solera associates, LIFT has supported many worthwhile causes including children and education, veterans, and wildlife preservation. Since its inception in 2011, Solera has contributed close to $1 million USD worldwide*.
*20% of all contributions are raised or funded by Solera associates
LIFT to LIFE
In 2014, Solera launched LIFT to LIFE, a new LIFT initiative that raises the bar in volunteerism.
The program provides up to six high-performing associates the opportunity to dedicate themselves to personal, fully compensated 4-6 month LIFT missions around the world and build sustainable roots for lasting change.
Solera was honored to partner with Aspire to support their mission of equipping young adults on the autism spectrum with the tools they need to lead successful, independent lives.
The first Aspiration Summit at Camp LIFT took place September 18-22, 2015 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and was designed to provide a transformational experience for participants to help them develop important skills they need to reach their personal aspirations at home.

LIFT in Cambodia
Solera global leaders convened in Siem Reap, Cambodia for an Uncommon LIFT program to support Senhoa Foundation’s Lotus Kids Club (LKC). LKC is a program dedicated to advocating education and putting an end to domestic violence and human trafficking. The LKC is based in the Banteay Chas area on the outskirts of Siem Reap, where families predominantly earn money by collecting recyclables from local garbage disposals. With an average daily income of 5,000 riel ($1.25 USD), the community suffers the harsh impacts of extreme poverty. The LKC is a preventative project against human trafficking, which began in 2009. Today, it operates in partnership with the Cambodian Center for the Protection of Children’s Rights.
Solera leaders from 10 different countries around the world united to build an extension of the pre-school by adding a playground for the children, almost doubling their current space and recreation area. Opportunities to play with the children, meet with their families and share in their schooling were the highlights of this experience. While the Lotus Kids Club gained both space and support, Solera employees feel they gained much more through this interaction. The smiling faces and love provided by these children was an overwhelming gratification to all who participated.

Solera’s LIFT proudly extends through many worthy organizations in hopes of giving a second chance.
