Core Principals

These foundational principles drive the endeavors of Interfinance Mortgage Corporation, led by Principal Broker Kiran Kaushal, one of the co-founders of the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation (SKCF). The Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation was established as a loving tribute to Shayam Kaushal (May 24, 1968 – February 10, 2009), who courageously battled Osteosarcoma for eight years before his passing. Since its inception in 2010, with the support of Interfinance Mortgage Corporation, the SKCF has contributed over $500,000 to numerous charitable initiatives and causes. These funds have made a significant impact, benefiting various organizations, including Mount Sinai’s stem cell research for Osteosarcoma, Autism Ontario, Free the Children, and Easter Seals.

A graduate of York University, Shayam was not only a student government member but also a champion tennis player and a passionate social activist, dedicated to causes like the Terry Fox Run and the Alpha Foundation. He also served as the president of the Independent Mortgage Brokers Association. Shayam’s life was a testament to selflessness and a commitment to helping others. The foundation’s existence is a testament to keeping the spirit of his boundless generosity alive for eternity.
