Supporting Dreams and Making an Impact
“Much of what I’ve done in my life began with people telling me it couldn’t be done and that I was crazy for even trying. But dreaming big has always been my way; everything I do is about championing people who may not have means but do have a vision and just need someone to give them the opportunity to make it happen.”
The single motivating factor behind Miles’ business success is his desire to make a difference in the world.
He is driven to help improve lives through his commitment to initiatives that strengthen communities, children’s welfare, education, and health care.
Making a Difference
Miles’ mission is to provide funding for inspirational initiatives that make an impact in the communities they serve by giving what’s needed to build upon visions and achieve dreams.
In a recent issue of Leaders magazine, Miles shares the inspiration for his philanthropic commitments. He also explained how his belief in giving back to the community has informed his approach to business.
Community – Canada and Israel
Miles is a passionate supporter of the State of Israel and a number of organizations that honour its past, present, and future. He champions the commemoration of victims of the Holocaust, as well as scholarships for Israeli soldiers and educational opportunities for technology innovators.
Miles’ childhood was positively influenced by those whose generosity gave him opportunities he otherwise wouldn’t have had. Providing safe spaces and access to programs that improve chances for success, Miles is devoted to bringing hope and opportunity to children and youth in communities around the world.
Miles credits his mother with instilling in him the value of a good education. He honours her memory by contributing to educational initiatives that help aspiring entrepreneurs gain the knowledge and skills to build their business and, over the long term, support their broader community.
Miles’ 12 Principles of Partnership include partnering with people who have the human compassion gene. Giving time, talent, and treasure is something he feels is inherently important and that by supporting the researchers, doctors, and groundbreaking initiatives in health care is a way to honour those who provide the care and, of course, those who receive it.
