With National Philanthropy Day upon us, we would like to recognize the Dilawri Foundation and its founders, Tony, Kap and Ajay Dilawri.
In 2018, the Dilawri Foundation made the largest ever private donation to a public library in Canada. Their leadership has enabled Vancouver Public Library to transform its spaces to meet the changing needs of our rapidly growing community.
Their extraordinary investment in our Library demonstrates the Dilawri Foundation’s appreciation of the vital role public libraries play in providing spaces for everyone, regardless of their economic or social circumstances, to learn, participate, connect and fulfill their potential.
The philanthropic branch of Canada’s largest automotive group, the Dilawri Foundation has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to improving the lives of children. Since 2002, the Foundation has donated tens of millions of dollars to Canadian health and children’s charities, profoundly improving the lives of thousands of young people across the country.
We are greatly inspired by the Dilawri Foundation and family’s deep commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of Canadian children and families.
