The Pavlik Foundation is a family-run charity that was founded in 2021 by Sarah and Ian Pavlik together with their children Sophie and Alex.
We are passionate about improving food security and helping youth access educational opportunities in the STEM subjects.
As a family foundation, we are able to be nimble and responsive to the needs of the communities we serve. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to achieve their goals, regardless of their background or circumstances.
One main focus is to provide support for youth who are interested in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. We believe that these fields are crucial for driving innovation and solving some of the biggest challenges facing society today. Through our educational programs and grants, we aim to help young people develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these fields.
In addition to our work in education, we also prioritize improving food security. We understand that access to healthy, nutritious food is a fundamental human right, and we work to support organizations and initiatives that aim to increase access to food for people in need. This includes supporting community gardens and urban agriculture projects, as well as providing financial support to food banks and other organizations that provide meals to those in need.
