ABOUT LA FONDATION POLYKAR
The seeds of La Fondation Polykar have long been sown. Since the founding of Polykar back in 1987, the desire to contribute to civil society has been an ethical part of our company fabric.
From the very beginning, Elyse Damdjee and Aziz Karim who founded Polykar, believed in the importance of giving back to the community and wider society.
Whether through financial resources, professional expertise or dedicated volunteer time, giving has become an integral part of the business today and embodies the company’s community engagement.
As Polykar has grown, the annual tradition of donating a percentage of gross sales has also continued.
For more than thirty years, we have been able to donate to and fund numerous community projects benefitting education and health, helping to improve the quality of life of communities in need.
From event sponsorships to direct investments in long-term programming, both in Canada and elsewhere, our commitment to human betterment and change for the future has continued.
In July 2018, La Fondation Polykar was created to perpetuate this valuable tradition.
By carefully selecting what we believe will be transformational investments in 6 life sectors – Arts & Culture, Communities, Environment, Education, Health and International Development – La Fondation Polykar investments will back projects that align with our principles of long-lasting impact, progress and partnership.
All revenues generated from the Foundation’s investments are reinvested in new ventures.
