Ali Dastmalchian Memorial Fund
Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business has launched the Ali Dastmalchian Memorial Fund, an endowment that will support international learning experiences for the school’s students. The fund honours the memory of Ali Dastmalchian, the school’s late dean, who was a passionate supporter of international education and cross-cultural understanding.
SFU Beedie will match all donations to the fund up to a maximum of $100,000. The funds will be used to ensure the school can continue to offer impactful opportunities for future generations of students.
