The Stober Foundation is a collective of progressive philanthropists based in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. After achieving success in the development and construction sectors in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Albert and Sandra Stober established the foundation in order to support local, national, and international charitable efforts that strive to improve the lives of those in need. Their values have inspired the next generation to evolve the foundation to the next level. Our vision is to take a progressive, forward-thinking, and sustainable approach to our philanthropic giving in support of innovative endeavours that seek to make our community and world a better place for all.
The Stober Foundation is pleased to accept project specific funding requests from charities through our online application portal. As a board we meet once a year to extensively review and adjudicate all applications, providing they meet our funding criteria and guidelines.
We consider both single term and multi-year commitments based on the strength of the application, its target population, mandates, the values of the charity, and providing it meets one (or more) of our Core Areas of Interest. If you’re a charity with a project/initiative that is moving the needle in your community AND making a big difference in our world, we’d love to hear from you.
Our family foundation was created to help those in need. We have been tremendously blessed to be in the graceful position to help others. As a family, we need to come together and adapt in order to provide support and opportunities for change. In doing so, we can help others become whole, better their circumstances, their lives, and ultimately the lives of so many others through their success. Let us steward with grace, effectively and with great impact.
