About Us

 

Our Story

After years of donating to the United Way, D. Keith MacDonald wanted to do something more impactful than simply writing a cheque.

…include the rest of Keith’s story here.  

The DKM Foundation (DKM) was established, by D. Keith MacDonald, as a Canadian private family foundation in 2011 and became a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) registered charity in 2012. The cornerstone of DKM’s values are integrity, respect and altruism. We value entrepreneurialism, flexibility and innovation. We build meaningful and collaborative relationships with our partners and beneficiaries, through our work we strive towards equality and dignity for all.

 

Our Vision

DKM will be an entrepreneurial and strategic funder of choice among Sub-Saharan focused social enterprises and not for profit organizations to support health and wellbeing, educational attainment and equitable economic opportunities for inclusive and sustainable prosperity in the region.
