About Us

The Besen Family Foundation was established in 1978 to build on the philanthropic endeavours of Eva and Marc Besen.


This tradition of giving has evolved across four Program Areas: Arts & Culture, Jewish Community, Early Childhood Education and Environment.

Integral to the Foundation is the involvement of family members of all ages and the opportunity to engage in the spirit and practice of giving which can evolve and be handed down to future generations.


The Besen Family Foundation’s investments are managed with a responsible investing lens and a commitment to investing in companies and funds with a positive social and environmental impact.
