Keith Beedie | PART III: A Philanthropist at Heart

Keith & Betty Beedie

A Philanthropist at Heart

Keith had long been an advocate for socially consciousness entrepreneurialism and has supported numerous charities and non-profits throughout Beedie Development Group’s ongoing success, including for various educational, healthcare, youth sports and safety organizations. The Keith and Betty Beedie Foundation, which Keith established with his wife and is continuously supported by their son Ryan, has given over $25 million dollars to local and international charities, notably $22 million to the Simon Fraser University School of Business (now, Beedie School of Business), $1.3 million to Burnaby General Hospital to help fund a much-needed new MRI, and the funds needed to build a complete medical centre in Sri Lanka after the devastating Tsunami of 2004.

From his very ordinary and humble beginning, Keith Beedie has built a true family-run empire of real estate, world-class development, and philanthropy.
