The Nanji Family Foundation is a philanthropic organization dedicated to supporting a wide range of charitable initiatives, impacting the lives of thousands through its contributions to a wide range of Canadian and international initiatives and healthcare facilities, including the Sunnybrook Foundation, North York General Hospital, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

“Our support for the Aga Khan Museum stems from our passion and appreciation for the arts and the ways in which they unify us,” says Azim Nanji, Gulshan and Pyarali Nanji’s son. “The Museum has established its place within the shared fabric of Canadian society, encouraging mutual understanding and appreciation of one another. We hope this contribution will encourage others to support their community, country, and the world.”

“We are truly humbled and awed by the transformational donation from the Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Family Foundation,” says Dr. Ulrike Al-Khamis, Director and CEO of the Aga Khan Museum. “This phenomenal gift will enable us to drive our mandate of building intercultural bridges through the arts while growing our Museum and its impact with the aim of contributing to more inclusive and peaceful communities.”

The generous donation will be the largest granted by the Nanji Family Foundation to an arts organization. In recognition of their longstanding generosity and support, the Museum’s Auditorium will be renamed the Nanji Family Foundation Auditorium.
