Nanji Family Foundation Pledges up to $100,000 Matching Gifts to COVID-19 Fund for Canadian Hospitals


Pyarali and Gulshan Nanji and their family of four children were among the thousands of Ugandans of Indian descent exiled from the country in the 1970s. They were airlifted to Canada and initially lived in Montreal where they had to start their lives from scratch.


Thankful for the safe refuge given to their family, Pyarali and Gulshan made a pledge to give back to the country that gave them safe haven. Every donation made to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation’s North Shore COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will be matched dollar for dollar with a donation from the Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Family Foundation up to a total of $100,000. This generous pledge means that your donation will have double the impact. With your help we have the potential to raise $200,000 for the Response Fund.

It’s no surprise the Nanjis are working to support hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to Burnaby Hospital Foundation’s recently established COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, incredibly the family is matching community donations – dollar for dollar – up to $100,000.

The funds are being used to address the emergency needs of the hospital during the crisis, including the growing list of urgently needed items being requested by frontline staff. Any funds left over once the pandemic subsides will continue to be invested into emergency care and equipment to ensure the hospital is even better prepared for a second wave or for the next time something like COVID-19 occurs.
