About The Foundation

Suliman S. Olayan Foundation (SSOF)

Founded in 1982, The Suliman S. Olayan Foundation assumed the responsibility of managing and overseeing charitable contributions and social activities on behalf of Olayan Financing Company and its subsidiaries. Since then, the Foundation developed a hands-on approach to review and allocate donations to the most effective social projects. The Foundation implemented its charitable activities in line with the clear vision of its founder, the late Sheikh Suliman S. Olayan, who strongly believed in empowering individuals to reach their potentials instead of creating dependency.
