ABOUT LA FONDATION POLYKAR
The seeds of La Fondation Polykar have long been sown. Since the corporate founding of Les Industries Polykar by Elyse Damdjee and Aziz Karim in 1987, the social ethic of giving back to community and civil society has been built into the company’s fabric.
For more than thirty years, we have been able to donate to and fund numerous community projects benefitting education and health, to help improve the quality of life of communities in need. Whether by donating financial resources, professional expertise or providing dedicated volunteer time to charitable causes, we are committed to impacting human betterment and positive change for the future.
Today, the annual tradition of donating a percentage of gross sales continues and with the growth of Polykar as a company, this integral tradition is now formally channelled through La Fondation Polykar.
Established in July 2018 by Polykar’s President, Amir Karim, La Fondation Polykar will perpetuate this valuable tradition of donating and directing investments in long-term programming, both in Canada and elsewhere.
By carefully selecting what we believe will be transformational investments in 6 life-enhancing sectors – Arts and Culture, Communities, Environment, Education, Health and International Development – investments by La Fondation Polykar 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.
