Throughout his career Stephen Dattels has been driven to use his wealth and resources to benefit the wider society within which he lives and operates and has encouraged his sons and other members of his family to adopt a similar proactive approach to philanthropy.

This philanthropic strategy was crystallised through the establishment of the Dattels Family Foundation, which is directed by his wife and two sons. More information about the key pillars of the charitable approach taken by the Dattels family and examples of the types of projects supported by the family can be found at dattelsfoundation.ca.
