Our History of Giving
The philanthropic spirit of Qualico has continued through the generations of leadership.
Our founders, Dr. David and Katherine Friesen, started small, and from their early days in the business, they felt a responsibility to help those around them where they could. Ruth and Brian Hastings continue to be pillars in the philanthropic communities in cities where Qualico has a history. Under the leadership of Kevin Van, Qualico has chosen to dedicate our impact giving in five areas: ending the cycle of poverty, promoting gender equality, ensuring sustainability in building, encouraging lifelong education, and celebrating healthy lives. We view these areas of giving as impact areas, where we feel motivated to take action.
Our Impact Areas
Our Connection to the Cause
We continually review how we support communities.
Our contributions need to have lasting and practical impact, but be relevant to a modern workforce and the company leadership. Underpinning this, while in the third generation of leadership, our giving must always stay true to the giving philosophy of our founders.
