The Diamond Foundation is proud to support Birthright Israel and provide the gift to Canadian participants who reside in British Columbia. There is nothing more powerful for a young person than to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Israel. We believe our gift will help ensure a vibrant future for the Jewish people by strengthening Jewish Identity and connection to Israel’s past, present and future.
The Diamond Foundation is a private charitable family foundation that has long played a pivotal and prominent role in Vancouver philanthropy. Created by Jack, z’l, and Gordon Diamond in 1984, its mission is to improve the quality of life for people in the communities in which the benefactors live and do business. It donates to organizations throughout the Greater Vancouver area, including schools, hospitals and numerous Jewish organizations. The Foundation seeks investments in organizations and issues that strengthen Jewish community life throughout Vancouver. The Foundation also allocates a significant portion of its funds to Vancouver-area organizations that target young people who do not have the same opportunities as other youth to develop their fullest potential or to participate in community life.
