Vancouver-based investing firm Victory Square is dedicating $10 million towards charity initiatives that improve the lives of children in BC.
Over 50 organizations across BC have been selected to receive funding from Victory Square. They include: BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, Science World, Meal Share, WE Family, Variety BC, Room 2 Read, A4K, Simon Fraser Victory Square Girl’s Tech Camp, Children’s Wish Foundation, Covenant House BC and KIDSSAFE.
“My family was welcomed to Canada when they escaped a repressive regime in the early seventies. My parents instilled in my siblings and I that freedom is a gift and that one must always give back in whatever way he or she can be it through time, talent and/or treasure,” said Shafin Diamond Tejani, founder of Victory Square.
“Shafin Diamond Tejani and Victory Square Technologies’ support of Variety has been transformational. Not only have they made a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families, but they have inspired hundreds of others to do the same by providing matching funds for both the Variety Kids Can Campaign and Global BC’s Variety Week” – Cally Wesson, CEO Variety British Columbia.
