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.
The Stober Foundation is pleased to accept project specific funding requests from charities 365 days a year through our online application portal. As a board we meet twice 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.
So, if you’re a charity with a project/initiative that is making a big difference in our world, we’d love to hear from you.
