The Stober Foundation is a private foundation 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.
In recent years, our foundation has evolved dramatically and now supports charitable initiatives from around the world while staying true to the community that has helped it thrive. As such, it actively engages and supports charities with creative, innovative, and most importantly, sustainable approaches to issues within the communities they serve.
We are dedicated to partnering with local, national, and international charitable initiatives that are progressive and sustainable in nature when it comes to creating solutions and opportunities in mental health, medicine, continuing education, and technology. We are passionate about giving back to a community that has given so much to us and remain focused on the work that has guided us from the beginning: community development, faith, humanitarian efforts, and innovation.
After nearly 30 years of driving our foundation forward, our family’s matriarch, the lovely Sandra Stober, stepped down and nominated her son, Ken, to oversee the foundation as President. This change marks a new generation of family philanthropy. The foundation is now positioned to build upon the incredible work done by Sandra, and drive our philanthropy forward - all while stewarding the grace bestowed upon us.
With family and a skilled executive leadership team at his side, Ken plans to pursue philanthropy like he has pursued his own charitable initiatives and business ventures: with a bold approach, open heart, and a focus on optimization and sustainability.
