Marjorie-Anne Sauder has become the newest member of the Board of Trustees of the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education. Sauder’s name is familiar to anyone who attends the University of B.C., since it was her family who, with a $20 million gift to the university, helped establish the Sauder School of Business.
Marjorie-Anne has been part of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. She was a founding member of the board of directors and continues to serve as a governor. She is also a dedicated volunteer with a devoted interest in the health and education of children. For many years, she has demonstrated a commitment to paediatric philanthropy and together with her husband, William, established a major endowment to support promising new researchers.
The DLC was created in 2005 to promote the secular values of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and to translate his vision of kindness, compassion and interconnectedness into initiatives and programs that can make a difference in people's lives, their neighbourhoods, and help them engender positive change in our world. Its programs include the Dalai Lama Fellows, Center for the Advancement of Heart-Mind Education (CAHME), Connecting for Change and a Speakers Series, which brings international experts on heart-mind research to Vancouver.
