Kovacevic Consulting

Many of the programs that STAND is able to provide come from our very generous private sponsors-Gianni Kovacevic is a shining example of those many donors. Gianni says his desire to help the STAND Foundation came from the recognition that there are youth in our community that work extremely hard to be successful despite financial limitations and should be rewarded for their efforts. “We live in one of the richest cities in the world, and yet there are kids that can’t find the financial means to pursue their dreams. These kids work extremely hard, and their financial situation shouldn’t prevent them from having goals and aspirations.” Gianni has worked on providing a permanent endowment under the STAND Foundation at Britannia Secondary School, one of the poorest schools in western Canada. “Giving back makes sense. Programs like STAND show people- especially our youth- that hard work certainly does pay off. By setting a positive example, I hope that others will be motivated to make a difference in their community as well.
