WHO WE ARE 

We started Sfaira Foundation to advance sustainable development; to influence philanthropy by taking a local, culturally-appropriate and holistic approach to development; where local communities are the leaders of their own solutions, and funding and investment is shared by community and Sfaira.

Our foundation supports community organizations around the world to tackle challenges across ten priority areas. These priority areas provide a framework to examine challenges and develop solutions. We have chosen to focus on these ten areas because, in our view, they all have a significant and interdependent impact on people and the planet.

For each priority area, we collaborate with community organizations to co-fund policies, plans and projects. We believe a key role of philanthropy is to advance promising solutions that government and companies are not supporting. With these actions, we hope communities can advance their own development.

We are fortunate that we live, work and play on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. 

We recognized and respect the UN Declaration On The Rights Of Indigenous Peoples and are taking steps to learn how to better support indigenous communities across the globe.
