The Stober Foundation, founded by Al and Sandra Stober in 1991, was created from a place of grace and a focus on philanthropy first living.
After achieving success in the development and construction sectors in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, the Stober family sought to give back to the communities that helped them thrive; with a specific mandate to help those in need find safety, security, and meaning in life.
The Stober Foundation has since evolved dramatically since its inception. What was once a local passion project now supports and funds charities from around the world. The foundation actively supports charities with creative, innovative, and most importantly, sustainable approaches to issues in our communities and helping those in need improve their quality of life and expand opportunities for growth and change.
We are passionate about partnering with charities that share our values and outlook on life, are forward-thinking, creative, and impactful when developing initiatives that seek to make the world a better place.
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.
