The Dawood family formed The Dawood Foundation in 1961, one of the largest private charitable trusts in the country today. The foundation has contributed funds for establishing schools, colleges, hospitals, dispensaries and towards scholarships for students.
Presently, a key project supported by The Dawood Foundation is the state-of-the-art city campus of the Karachi School for Business & Leadership (KSBL). KSBL is a graduate management school, established in Karachi in strategic collaboration with the University of Cambridge, Judge Business School. KSBL will offer world-class education in leadership and business, with a focus on ethics, entrepreneurship, innovation and social responsibility, to the many talented young men and women in Pakistan, as well as international students and corporate executives. The KSBL full-time MBA will commence in September 2012, followed by the Working-Professional MBA in 2014. The Executive Education programs were launched in May 2010 and are being delivered by world renowned faculty from Cambridge and other international business schools.
The famous Dawood College of Engineering & Technology, Karachi, was established by The Dawood Foundation in 1962 (nationalized in 1971), but continues to function to date. The Dawood Public School in Karachi, the school donated in Muzaffarabad during the earthquake period and the Skardu School of Science and Humanities, are just some of the other projects undertaken by this Foundation. The Foundation also awards scholarships to talented and deserving students for higher studies. The Dawood Foundation also donates regularly to Al-Shifa Trust Eye Hospital Islamabad, a leading charitable eye hospital. There have also been other significant donations to Beaconhouse National University and Lahore University for Management Sciences in Lahore.
