A great philanthropist and a long-term supporter of scholarship and learning, for years, Peter Kule together with his late wife Doris Kule have been the greatest friends to the Kule Folklore Centre whose name it proudly carries: the Peter and Doris Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore.
From humble beginnings in the village of Stratyn, Ukraine, Peter Kule came to Canada in 1938, studied diligently, and became a successful chartered accountant with his own firm. Dr. Peter Kule's vision is a belief that learning is an eternal enterprise, that human ideals of philanthropy, study, and trying to make us better people can never be curtailed. To that end, they have generously donated funding to institutions nationally and internationally. We are proud that with Drs. Kules’ help, the Kule Folklore Centre has several endowments that bear their name - the Kule Chair Endowment which endorsed the establishment of the Kule Chair for Ukrainian Ethnography, the Kule Folklore Endowment which supports the Kule Folklore Centre and its many projects, and the Kule Fellowship Endowment which supports Post-Doctoral Fellowships.
Happy birthday Dr. Kule and thank you for your support! Многая літа!
