Heart and Soul Foundation

When Tim and Petra Bontkes founded Infinity Properties Group 20 years ago, their vision lay far beyond developing communities through bricks and mortar.

Infinity Properties launched its land development and management business in 2001, and pivoted to designing and building neighbourhoods in 2011. With this shift to community-building, they expanded their already strong charitable giving program by creating the Heart & Soul Foundation to focus on the needs of Langley’s most vulnerable. The Heart & Soul Foundation gives to animal protection agencies, families and women in need, and causes related to youth mental health and wellness—specifically Encompass Services.

“There is nothing more valuable than investing in our youth. They are our future,” says Petra Bontkes. She and Tim Bontkes are parents to four teenaged children.

When the Bontkeses heard that Encompass’s professionals would be helping youth in Langley, they jumped at the chance to give $150,000, a landmark donation, to make an even bigger difference in Langley.

“Knowing that Encompass is partnering with Foundry Langley feels like a dream team partnership,” she adds. “We feel that Foundry Langley will prove to be an invaluable resource for our youth in Langley to not just survive, but to thrive.”
