Dream, grow and inspire. It’s the motto of Ampri Group—a real estate development and investment company that, since 1991, has spent as much energy building our community as it has building homes.
The Volunteers are Stars awards gala honoured the Richmond company with a Shining Star Award for caring companies.
“Dream, grow, inspire is about pushing ourselves to be leaders, but more importantly to foster and develop leadership qualities in others,” said Amit Sandhu, Ampri Group’s CEO.
“Through the process of giving back, the ones who give their time and resources benefit the most. We benefit by building relationships with like-minded individuals, we build a network of friends, unified in making a positive impact.”
Over the past four years, Ampri Group has offered tremendous support to the Richmond Hospital Foundation, donating over $200,000 towards various projects and campaigns.
The company has been a supporter of the foundation’s Starlight Gala since 2010, and Sandhu sits on three of the foundation’s committees.
Ampri Group also supports other areas of the community. In 2007, after Anderson Elementary School’s playground was destroyed by fire, the company led a fundraising campaign to rebuild it—an effort that ultimately raised $100,000.
Ampri also invests in youth. Its “Dream Grow Inspire” scholarships offer $1,000 to students at a growing number of local high schools.
The company also sponsors, and Sandhu chairs, TiE Young Entrepreneurs Vancouver, a program that empowers youth to become the next generation of business and community leaders.
