With their continued support for JABC programs, the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation is carrying out their mandate to better the lives of children through health and education.  This generous donation will impact the lives of over 2000 students this year alone.  Since 2006 the Foundation has donated over $230,000 towards Junior Achievement programs.

 

JABC would like to thank the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation for their continued support and generous philanthropy.  JABC is a non-profit organization committed to inspiring and motivating BC’s youth to take an active role in their future through business education.  To accomplish this goal, JABC works in partnership with dedicated donors, business volunteers, educators and the greater community to deliver programs to students in grades 5 - 12.  The Foundation’s contribution this year will help guarantee that BC communities continue to have access to JABC programs.
