Ian Pavlik is the Co-Founder of The Pavlik Foundation.


Ian Pavlik is the former Founder and President of Pavliks.com and The Portal Connector, an IT solutions company based in Ontario, Canada. He was once a professional alpine ski racer who moved into the business world in the early 1990s, when he took over the family marketing and advertising business.

He later shifted the company’s focus towards the IT industry and grew it from a small father-son operation into a 70-person, multimillion-dollar organization. In late 2022, Ian and his wife Sarah left the business and started a charity called The Pavlik Foundation, which focuses on improving food security and providing educational opportunities in STEM subjects to young people.

At the foundation, they are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others.

They support organizations and initiatives that aim to increase access to healthy, nutritious food for people in need, and also provide educational programs and grants to help young people develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in STEM fields.

They are grateful for the support of our donors and volunteers, who help them to make a meaningful impact on the communities they serve.
