The Giustra Foundation

For over two decades, The Giustra Foundation has supported innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian and economic challenges. When a crisis hits, we strive for immediate action, but we also believe in trying to prevent a crisis before it happens through donations to charities in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada. We assist and develop initiatives focused on women and children, health and education, homelessness, and refugee resettlement. 
We believe that successfully tackling critical problems demands new thinking, new approaches, and the ability to move with speed and compassion. The Foundation actively supports organizations and individuals that share this worldview, and that are focused on working efficiently to measurably improve people’s lives. Among the organizations that we have funded are the Boys Club Network, Streetohome Foundation, the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (including its efforts to accelerate refugee sponsorship through the BVOR program), and the Sarah McLachlan School of Music.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Giustra Foundation has been cooperating closely with government, the private sector, and other non-profits in Vancouver to establish an emergency feeding program that provides healthy meals to low-income women and children, vulnerable seniors, and others in need in our community.
