从塞缪尔家族生意的早期开始, social responsibility has directly shaped every aspect of our enterprise. 基于他回馈社会和改善社区的理念, third-generation owner Sigmund Samuel was responsible for developing the Canadiana Collection at the Royal Ontario Museum and the undergraduate library at the University of Toronto. 在这个传统的基础上, the 撒母耳家庭基金会 was established by fourth-generation owners Ernest and Elizabeth Samuel in 1993, 专注于艺术, 教育, 和医疗, which included support for the Royal Ontario Museum and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
在现任主席和主席的领导下, 金撒母耳, the Foundation’s mandate has expanded to include poverty eradication, 人权, 气候变化, 青年和老年人赋权, 和通用设计. The 撒母耳家庭基金会 also works closely with several key partners and collaborators on its Social Connectedness Program. Designed to overcome social isolation and create a greater sense of community, this core 撒母耳家庭基金会 initiative focuses on grassroots knowledge and programs to build caring communities and advocate for inclusive policy change.
